Sean Clerkin in court on Baton Relay 'disruption' charge

A man has appeared in court charged with trying to disrupt the Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton Relay.

Sean Clerkin, 53, is alleged to have run on to Darnley Road, Barrhead, East Renfrewshire, on Wednesday in a bid to disrupt the baton's progress.

At Paisley Sheriff Court, he denied the charge. Mr Clerkin was released on bail pending a trial date next year.

As a condition of bail, he is not allowed near the Baton Relay or any event zone during the Games.
