He was scheduled to show at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, however, his defence solicitor, Lynn Swann, said Adams had contracted Covid-19 and “required to isolate for ten days”.

The lawyer noted a report indicated there had been an improvement in his engagement with social workers and said a review was due to call in four weeks.
