A FARM worker involved in a bust-up with his partner has been ordered to be of good behaviour for the next six months at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

Twenty year old Adam Kinghorn from Blyth Bridge, pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at a house in Graham Street, Peebles, on April 9.

He admitted shouting and swearing and preventing others from entering or leaving a bedroom during a dispute with the woman.

The court heard the relationship was now over.

Sheriff Peter Pasterson deferred sentence until December 16 and said if Kinghorn was of good behaviour he would be admonished.
