Angela Eagle's staff feared for their safety after email death threat
Staff working for Wallasey MP Angela Eagle said they had feared for her and their safety after death threats were sent to her in an email.
Steven King, 45, of Mirin Wynd, Paisley, Scotland, pleaded guilty at Wirral Magistrates Court today to a charge of sending a grossly offensive, indecent, obscene or menacing message by a public communications network.
Shopworker King told police he was “venting his anger” and would never have acted on any of the threats he made – which included telling her he would bring her life to an end with a gun or knife.
