Scottish comic book writer Mark Millar has hit out at Twitter users who messaged him abuse after he switched his political allegiances ahead of Thursday's General Election.

The Kick-Ass writer had previously pledged his support for SNP but he has since decided he will be voting for Labour.

He tweeted: "A thought: When I publicly went from Lab to SNP I got no abuse in 3 yrs. Today I went SNP to Lab & got over 100 abusive tweets in 1 hr.

"This kind of thing is water off a duck's back to me, but seriously - Is this the kind of Scotland any of us want to live in?"
