A 23-year-old man who broke another man's nose in a pub fight has been ordered to pay £750 at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

John McDade of Snowden Place, Stirling, pleaded guilty to punching the man in the face at the Central Bar in Northgate, Peebles, on March 16.

The mechanical engineer had been visiting Peebles with various family members but fell out with them and went drinking at a local bar before getting involved in a dispute.

Sheriff Robert Vaughan said: "This was a foolish drunken episode. It appears it was out of character but your victim suffered a broken nose and still requires treatment."

McDade was ordered to pay £500 compensation to his victim and was also fined £250.
