A man has been ordered to be of good behaviour for the next six months after threatening to kill a couple and their young child during a disturbance.

Selkirk Sheriff Court was told that a man was driving down Montrose Place in his Fiat when McCallum appeared and started kicking the car.

The child was screaming out of fear throughout the incident, the court heard.

Sentence was deferred until February 11 next year, and McCallum was warned of the consequences of any reoffending in the meanwhile.
