A Dundee man has appeared in court charged with making threats to  manufacture and plant bombs throughout the city and to kill members of the public.

Patrick McCabe, 65, is accused of behaving in a threatening and abusive manner likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm, causing a major incident to be declared and residents to be evacuated from their homes on Fairbairn Street.

McCabe, of Fairbairn Street, appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court and made no plea.

A motion for bail was refused and the case was continued for further examination.
