A woman has been admonished after admitting wilfully neglecting a young child in her care because she’d had too much booze to drink.

Kathleen McAlpine, 34, of Orchard Park in Kelso, had previously pleaded guilty at Jedburgh Sheriff Court to committing that offence on July 1 last year.

She was given an admonishment after being of good behaviour during a period of deferred sentence.
