A 22-year-old man who admitted assaulting his partner to the danger of her life has been jailed for 18 months at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.

Nathan Brown pleaded guilty to carrying out the attack while sitting in the back of a vehicle and pulling the woman's scarf tightly and compressing her neck whereby she was unable to breathe.

He admitted a charge of assaulting the woman to her injury and danger of life in Jedburgh on December 29.

Brown, formerly of Eildon Road, Hawick, had the sentence back-dated to December 31 when he was first remanded in custody.
