A man who was arrested after an Edinburgh councillor was attacked while delivering leaflets has been released without charge.
Liberal Democrat Councillor Kevin Lang said he was “very shaken up” after he was confronted by a man “hurling verbal abuse” at him as he was delivering leaflets in Dundas Avenue, South Queensferry at about 11.10am on Sunday.
Police subsequently arrested a 65-year-old man in connection with the incident and confirmed on Monday that he has been released without charge.
Alex Cole-Hamilton, leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, branded the attack as “completely unacceptable”.
