David Meek, 29, of Church Street, appeared from custody last Thursday and pleaded guilty to the offence which happened the previous day.

He had appeared in court two days earlier for a similar offence.

Sheriff Peter Paterson told Meek this was his "last warning" and any further breaches would likely result in custody.

Meek pleaded guilty to being in the company of Kimberley McLeod at a house in Marine Square, Eyemouth, last Wednesday. The court heard a member of the public had heard screaming and shouting coming from the house.

When police turned up, Meek was in the house and found to be in breach of a non-harassment order.​​​​​​​​​​​​​
