A 32-year-old Galashiels man facing an alleged sexual offence, has been remanded in custody following a private appearance at Selkirk Sheriff Court on Monday.

Darren Richardson made no plea or declaration when he appeared before Sheriff Kevin Drummond, and the case was continued for further examination of the evidence.

Richardson was remanded in custody, pending a further appearance next week.

The court appearance follows an incident in the Langlee area of Galashiels on Friday evening when a 36-year-old woman was alleged to have been the victim of a serious sexual assault.
