Scottish socialist Tommy Sheridan was freed from jail on Monday after a year inside.

Prison authorities attempted to gag Tommy on his release, but this threat was lifted. However he will be under home curfew for the next six months.

Tommy was jailed in January last year after being found guilty of lying under oath. That followed his successful defamation action against the now closed and disgraced News of the World newspaper.

He plans to challenge his conviction in the courts.
