A JEDBURGH man's trial at the town's sheriff court has been adjourned due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Philip Lockwood, 62, of Dunion Road, faces charged of assaulting a man last August, stealing a set of car keys and obstructing police.

But when he did not appear for the trial his lawyer explained that his client was in the "at risk" category with lung difficulties.

The trial has now been rescheduled for August 4.
