A PORT Glasgow man has been charged with threatening his neighbours with violence and vandalising their front door.

Colin Haywood, 49, is said to have shouted and swore at the couple and repeatedly struck their door with an unknown object on October 4.

He has pleaded not guilty through lawyer Derek Buchanan at Greenock Sheriff Court.

Haywood, of Northfield Avenue, is currently on bail and the case is due to call again next March.
