BACKGROUND reports have been ordered into a Galashiels woman who admitted breaking into a neighbour's flat.

Catrina Aprile, 37, pleaded guilty at Selkirk Sheriff Court to stealing a computer games console and a laptop during the break-in at the house in Church Square between April 20 and April 24 last year.

Sentence was deferred until July 29 for a Criminal Justice Social Work Report and a Restriction of Liberty Order assessment.

A not guilty plea from her co-accused Robert Charters, 32, also of Church Square, Galashiels, to the same charge was accepted by the Crown.
