A 24-year-old man has been accused of distributing a sex tape involving the former lead singer of a Scottish folk band.

Greg Halfpenny pleaded not guilty at Jedburgh Sheriff Court to two charges of disclosing a film showing a man and a woman in an "intimate situation".

It is claimed he sent intimate videos over social media without consent and in doing so intended to cause them fear, alarm or distress.

The offence is alleged to have taken place at a house in Hawick on December 29.

Halfpenny of Guthrie Drive, Hawick, is charged under the Abusive Behaviour and Sexual Harm(Scotland) Act 2016 and will stand trial on August 6 with an intermediate hearing on July 22.

In January, Iain Scott - who was the lead singer of Scocha at the time - issued a public apology after a video emerged online of him indulging in a fetish with a woman.
