A 32-year-old man has been remanded in custody at Selkirk Sheriff Court after being accused of attempting to strike a man on the head with a bottle.

Thomas Rousseau is alleged to have also punched the man during the incident at a property in Scott Street, Galashiels.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge and a trial date was fixed for October 10 with an intermediate diet on September 25.

The Crown opposed bail and Rousseau - who now lives in Haddington - was remanded in custody by Sheriff Derrick McIntyre.
