A 30-year-old man has been remanded in custody after admitting being in possession of heroin and a knuckleduster at a house in Galashiels.

Daniel Pierrepoint pleaded guilty to the offences which happened at a property in Glendinning Terrace, on July 30.

Pierrepoint, who gave an address in Grantham, Lincolnshire, also admitted two charges of failing to appear in court.

Sentence was deferred until March 13 and Sheriff Peter Paterson refused a motion for bail with Pierrepoint remanded in custody.
