AN "attention seeking" woman Snapchatted a picture of her holding a knife against her forearm, Selkirk Sheriff Court has been told.

Police went to Sarah Scott's house where she became involved in a bust-up with the officers.

After being dispossessed of the knife, Scott later in the day went to Asda in Galashiels to purchase another two knives and again Snapchatted the friend and saying 'look at my new toys'.

Scott, 24, appeared from custody on Saturday morning and pleaded guilty to charges of obstructing police and attempting to seize a knife from a police officer during the disturbance in Woodstock Avenue, Galashiels, on Friday and being in possession of two knives in Livingstone Place, Galashiels.

Procurator fiscal Graham Fraser said the friend was concerned that Scott was going to harm herself and called police.

He added : "There was an extraordinary amount of wasted police time and resources to deal with someone desperate to seek other people's attention."

Defence lawyer Ed Hulme said a forthcoming court case in which she is a witness was weighing heavily on her mind making her depressed and thoughts of self harming.

Sheriff Peter Paterson deferred sentence for background reports until January 29 and granted Scott bail.
