A former council leader has become the second person to be arrested at a polling station today.
Marie Rimmer, 67, a former head of the St Helens local authority in Merseyside, was arrested this afternoon after a woman was allegedly assaulted near Shettleston Community Centre in Glasgow.
Police confirmed she has been charged. She is expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court at a later date.
A police spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland can confirm that a 67-year-old woman has been arrested and charged in connection with an alleged assault on a female following an incident at Shettleston Community Centre in Amulree Street, Glasgow, around 1pm today.
“A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.”
Earlier in the day, a man was arrested outside a polling station in Faifley Road in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, at about 8.30am.
However, with more than two million people casting their vote, the day so far has been largely trouble free.
