A Kelso man accused of an assault and robbery at a local restaurant has been found not guilty following a trial at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.

Colin Millar had denied assaulting the manager of the Contented Vine in Woodmarket by threatening him with violence and robbing him of £185 on July 14.

The 61-year-old of Farrier Court had also been charged with extortion by inducing him to send him a further £60.
