Two men arrested in police raids on Saturday in a crackdown on alleged sectarian internet campaigns have appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

Stephen Birrell, 27, was arrested at a house in the city's east end.

He was charged with a breach of the peace aggravated by religious prejudice by sending messages of an offensive nature to a social network site.

David Craig, 23, who was arrested in a raid on a house in Paisley, was also charged with breach of the peace.

They made no plea or declaration and both men were given bail.
