A MOBILE phone used by a man accused of murdering Bradley Welsh was “in the vicinity” of the T2 Trainspotting star’s home on the day of his fatal shooting, a trial heard.

The device “attributed” to Sean Orman was picked up by cell sites in Edinburgh’s New Town between 12.04 am and 12.57 am on April 17, 2019. Welsh was gunned down on his doorstep in the city’s Chester Street at about 8 pm that evening.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard a Ford Kuga car allegedly used by the gunman also drove past Welsh’s home on four different occasions in the days before the shooting, according to tracker data from the vehicle.

The stolen car was also spotted outside Welsh’s boxing gym in the city eight days before his death.

Orman, 30, denies murdering Welsh and all other charges. He claims he was on a cycle ride to Kirknewton, West Lothian, at the time Welsh was killed.
