Policeman in court on bail-breach charge

A police sergeant awaiting trial for alleged sexual offences has been accused of breaching the conditions of his bail.

Kevin Storey, formerly of Hawick and now living in Melrose, appeared in private at Selkirk Sheriff Court where he made no plea or declaration and his case was continued for further examination.

The 48-year-old has been charged under the Criminal Procedure Scotland Act 1995 and the offence is said to have happened last month.

He was released on bail by Sheriff Peter Paterson and his next court appearance has still to be confirmed.

Storey is due to face trial at the High Court on a number of sexual-related charges on October 27.
