A 37-YEAR-OLD man involved in a bust-up at his former partner’s home will attend the Caledonian Men’s Programme as part of a community payback order.

Karl Harvey, of Wellfield Road, Hawick, pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by entering a property in the town by a window and shouting and swearing on September 9.

Jedburgh Sheriff Court said he had an on-off relationship with the woman and was upset she had blocked him on her mobile phone.

During the disturbance he said: “Please unblock me and give me a hug.”

Harvey was told to go away which he eventually did.
