James Easton (19), 8 Ash Grove, Westquarter, narrowly avoided jail after admitting assaulting a police officer.

As a direct alternative at Falkirk Sherif Court last Thursday he was placed on a community payback order and told to complete 160 hours’ unpaid work in six months for the attack on Constable David Graham on August 18.
