A GALASHIELS man who caused a disturbance at his former partner's home on Hogmanay has been ordered to be of good behaviour for the next six months at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jordan Cunningham pleaded guilty to conducting himself in a disorderly manner, shouting, banging on a door and refusing to leave when asked at a house in Galashiels on December 31.

Fiona Hamilton, prosecuting, explained how the accused had attended at his ex-partner's home and was shouting through the letter box demanding to be let into the property.

She said a neighbour recorded the disturbance on a mobile telephone and that Cunningham refused to leave when asked.

After around 10 minutes, the police were called.

Defence lawyer Ed Hulme said the incident happened on Hogmanay and his client may well have been intoxicated.

Sheriff Peter Paterson said he would defer sentence until September 19 for good behaviour and if Cunningham was in no further trouble he would be admonished.
