Blair Scott had previously admitted being thrown out of his partner’s home then repeatedly knocking on a door and windows for three hours before police were called.

He had pleaded guilty to committing that domestic-related offence at a house in Kenilworth Avenue in Galashiels, but failed to appear for sentencing.

Scott, now living in Edinburgh, also admitted a breach of bail by being in the house in Kenilworth Avenue despite being banned by a court order from going there.
