English people must not refer to Scots as trash

Scots call the English worse than that

A teenager has been arrested after allegedly posting an offensive message on Twitter regarding the fatal bin lorry crash in Glasgow.

The 19-year-old, believed to be Ross Loraine, from Sunderland, handed himself in to police yesterday evening after a number of complaints were made about the tweet.

He is alleged to have written: “So a bin lorry has crashed into 100 people in Glasgow eh, probably the most trash its ever picked up in one day that.”

Northumbria Police said he was arrested on suspicion of making a malicious communication and had been bailed while they made further inquiries into the incident.

Six people were killed when the lorry careered out of control in Glasgow city centre yesterday afternoon, with three of them being from the same family.

He was referring to Glaswegians rather than Scots in general, but still a very stupid remark to tweet, and shows he is indeed a 'twit' (Brit slang for a fool).
