Arrest after 'offensive' refugee posts on social media

A man has been arrested in connection with a series of social media posts related to Syrian refugees.

The allegedly offensive posts concern refugees living in Rothesay on the Isle of Bute.

Police said a 40-year-old man was arrested in connection with alleged offences under the Communications Act.

He is expected to appear at Greenock Sheriff Court later. A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
