A teenager has admitted dialling 999 28 times in the space of two hours without a valid reason.

Sentence was deferred at Selkirk Sheriff Court on Glenn Todd, 18, of Cuddyside, Peebles, until September 10 for the production of a psychiatric report.

That offence was committed on June 20.

Todd also admitted dialling 999 on three occasions on April 22 and making a false claim that his mother was dead or injured and requesting that an ambulance be sent out.
