Police force allows comments and “likes” on Facebook page about Andy Coulson arrest
The police force that charged Andy Coulson with alleged perjury has announced the decision on Facebook, allowing people to comment and indicate that they “like” it.
David Cameron’s former communications chief was detained for questioning at Govan police station in Glasgow on Wednesday by officers from Strathclyde Police.
The force’s Facebook page announced the arrest of a 44-year-old man, saying he had been arrested and charged with perjury.
A number of comments were posted on the site while more than 40 people indicated that they “like” it.
One of them was indicated as Lynn Sheridan. Mr Coulson’s arrest centres on claims about phone hacking he made during his evidence at Tommy Sheridan’s trial in 2010. The politician has a sister called Lynn.
Another person commenting on the page wrote: “is ‘liking’ this a possible contempt of court…?”
