Love appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday, having missed a scheduled appearance the week prior because she was recovering from a fractured ankle.

Stephen Biggam, defence solicitor, said his client had also suffered a fractured eye socket after being assaulted.

He added: “She tells me she’s not very mobile at the moment.”

Love was placed on a structured deferred sentence and ordered to attend services that assist with mental health and alcohol difficulties.

Sentence was deferred for six months for her to be of good behaviour. There will be a review in three months’ time.
