Terence Drum admitted having committed that offence on farmland at Eddy Road in Newstead, near Melrose, on January 17.

A lawyer for the 57-year-old bus driver, of Newstead, told the court the dogs had never behaved like that before and his client was unaware of sheep ever having been in the field in question before.
