A 24-year-old will stand trial at Jedburgh Sheriff Court on a charge of assaulting a former partner by hitting her buttocks with a dog lead at his Burnfoot Road home in Hawick on December 7.

Dylan Scott also faces a charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.

He denies both allegations, and a trial is scheduled for March 8.
