A SHEEP farmer involved in a road rage incident has been admonished at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

Fifty five year old James Muir of Torquhan near Stow, pleaded guilty to assaulting a cyclist on May 19.

The court was told Muir grabbed the cyclist by the wrist during a confrontation after he had been trying to overtake the bicycle in his car.

His lawyer said Muir made a "poor decision" after reacting to photographs being taken of him on a mobile phone by the cyclist.

Muir also pleaded guilty to possessing ammunition at his home without a proper certificate.

The court was told that his grandfather had brought the ammunition back from the Second World War and left in a cabinet.

Muir was fined £400.
