A WOMAN has been charged with wasting police time after allegedly claiming to have been raped in Aberdeen.

Charlene Stott, 22, allegedly told police she had been sexually assaulted on July 31 at Woolmanhill Hospital, Aberdeen.

She was charged with causing Grampian Police to launch an investigation when she knew the claim was false.

Stott, whose address was listed in court papers as 28 Lemon Place, Aberdeen, made no plea in relation to the charge when the case called at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

She will face the charges again later this month.
