FOUR people are due to stand trial at Jedburgh Sheriff Court accused of assaulting a man in the town to his severe injury.

Liam Cleghorn, 19, of Canongate, Jedburgh; Jack Hay, 21, of Thornfield Crescent, Selkirk; Sean Sutherland, 25, of Ciarmount, Jedburgh; and Linzi Carver, 19, of Hillend Drive, Hawick, deny repeatedly punching and kicking a male on the body in Abbey Place on Hogmanay.

It is alleged the man's head repeatedly struck the pavement and he was rendered unconscious.

The trial will take place in September.
