Student arrested over Lennon 'suspicious package' photo

A student is to appear in court after a photo of him holding a package addressed to Celtic manager Neil Lennon was posted on a social networking site.

Stirling University student Lee Dunlop was arrested after police received a complaint about the Facebook picture.

The 22-year-old was pictured holding the package while dressed up as children's TV character Postman Pat.

He was charged with a sectarian breach of the peace and is due to appear at court next month.

A spokeswoman for Central Scotland Police said: "A 22-year-old male has been charged with a breach of the peace with a sectarian element. He will appear next month at Stirling Sheriff Court."

Last week, two men appeared in court charged with dispatching explosive substances and hoax bombs after suspect packages were sent to Neil Lennon and high-profile supporters of the club.

Earlier this week police were called to Scottish club Cowdenbeath after a package containing a knife was delivered to club chairman Donald Findlay QC - one of Scotland's top lawyers and a former vice-chairman of Rangers.
