Chairman of Ukip in Scotland stands down after court appearence

Arthur Misty Thackeray is accused of making indecent phone calls.

The chairman of Ukip in Scotland has stepped down after appearing in court accused of making indecent phone calls.

The party confirmed Arthur Misty Thackeray had temporarily stood down from the post but a spokesman said it would be inappropriate to comment further.

Mr Thackeray, 55, appeared in private at Glasgow Sheriff Court last week, the Crown Office confirmed.

He made no plea or declaration when he faced six charges under section 7(1) of the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009 and was bailed. The case was continued for further examination.
