Prime Minister David Cameron's former director of communications Andy Coulson is to "vigorously contest" a perjury charge over the Tommy Sheridan trial.

Mr Coulson, 44, was detained at his home in London on Wednesday, taken for questioning to Glasgow, then formally charged and arrested that evening.

The charge related to evidence he gave at the perjury trial of former MSP Tommy Sheridan in 2010.

Mr Coulson's lawyer said he would fight the allegations if they went to trial.

A statement from DLA Piper said: "Andy Coulson will vigorously contest the perjury allegations made against him yesterday by Strathclyde Police should they ever result in a trial.

"We have no further comment at this stage."
