A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with comments made on a social networking site inciting people to riot in Kirkcaldy.

The man, who is from the town, is expected to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Monday.

It follows riots in England which first erupted on Saturday evening.

There have been several other arrests on similar charges in Scotland, including four in Dundee and one in Glasgow.
