A MAN has been arrested after allegedly carrying eggs as the Queen’s funeral procession passed him.
The 38-year-old man has been charged with breach of the peace after he was allegedly sighted with the potential projectiles near Duthie Park in Aberdeen on Sunday as the Queen’s funeral procession traveled from Balmoral to Edinburgh.
Police said he was released on an obligation and will appear in court at a later date.
Thousands gathered in the north east, marking the path taken by the Queen’s coffin on its way from her Aberdeenshire estate to St Giles Cathedral in the capital.
It comes amid a spate of anti-peace arrests across Britain, as police crack down on people expressing anti-monarchy sentiment – including a man who said he was threatened with arrest for showing a blank sheet of paper worn in front of the Palace of Westminster.
A secretly filmed police officer said the man might have been arrested if he wrote a Republican slogan on the sheet.
Scottish police said: “A 38-year-old man was found dead on Sunday 11th April.
“He was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date and a report will be sent to the Attorney General for Finance.”
