A former soldier has been fined £175 for possession of an air rifle without the proper certificate.

Adam Cockburn, 37, pleaded guilty to committing that offence at his home in Kelso’s Orchard Park on January 6.

A not-guilty plea to reckless discharge of a firearm was accepted by the crown at Jedburgh Sheriff Court, however.
