AN arrest warrant has been issued for a woman accused of causing a disturbance at Borders General Hospital.

Davinia Harrison is accused of throwing a cup of water over a nurse who was treating her on Hogmanay.

The 31-year-old failed to turn up this week at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

She is also charged with biting a female police constable on the arm and repeatedly kicking her on the legs during the disturbance at Borders General Hospital.

She also faces a third charge of threatening behaviour by shouting, swearing and screaming loudly.

Harrison of Ramsay Road, Hawick, had previously pleaded not guilty to all charges.

On a separate complaint she denies finding £29.22 at the Almond Tree Cafe in High Street, Hawick, on December 1 without trying to find the true owner and stealing the cash.
