A man has been arrested and charged after an allegedly racially abusive letter was sent to MSP Anas Sarwar.

Police confirmed that the 68-year-old has been released on an undertaking to appear in court at a later date.

Mr Sarwar, a Labour MSP for the Glasgow region, recently launched a cross-party group on tackling Islamophobia.

He has also spoken out about his experience of racism while he was standing as a candidate for the Scottish Labour leadership.
