Man charged after Amarone restaurant siege in Glasgow

A man has been charged with breach of the peace after a siege at a Glasgow restaurant on Friday evening.

Edward Johnston, 38, of Whiston, Merseyside, made no plea or declaration when he appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

A large area of Glasgow city centre was sealed off for almost eight hours when police were called to the Amarone Italian restaurant last week.

Mr Johnston was remanded to hospital for an assessment order.

He will appear in court again at a later date.
