A Galashiels man has been remanded in custody after a woman was sexually assaulted in her home on the town’s Langlee housing estate on Friday night.

Darren Richardson made no plea or declaration when he appeared in private before Sheriff Kevin Drummond at Selkirk today.

The case was continued for further examination of the evidence and the 32-year-old will be brought back to court for another private hearing within eight days.

A major operation was launched after Police Scotland said a 36-year-old woman was attacked for a sustained period.
