A 26-year-old man who threatened to petrol bomb a neighbour's house during a noise dispute has been jailed for four months at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

Harrison Long was found guilty after a trial of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at Caddon Court in Innerleithen on various occasions between December 9 and 27.

In addition to the bomb threat he was convicted of shouting and swearing, making offensive comments, slamming doors and threatening to assault children.

The trial heard how the offences began over a noise dispute.

The four month prison sentence was back-dated to December 28 when Long was remanded in custody in connection with the matter.
