The Queen

An Aberdeen man is due to go on trial accused of threatening the Queen on social media sites.

Alastair Peter Dow is alleged to have caused fear and alarm on July 25 and 26 last year by posting offensive, abusive and threatening messages online about Her Majesty.

Prosecutors claim the 54-year-old acted in a threatening and abusive manner while at his home, 21 Hollybank Place.

Dow denies the charge against him and will go on trial next month.
