A man has been remanded in custody after being accused of assaulting police officers and struggling violently with them.

He also pleaded not guilty to taking a car without its owner’s consent from Hogalee in Scalloway, and driving with no licence, insurance or MOT.

Trial was set at 11th June, with an intermediate diet of 27th May. Bail was refused.
