Dylan Buchanan (19), 22 Kintyre Place, Tamfourhill, claimed he missed a meeting with social workers because his dog had eaten the letter.

At Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday sentence for acting in a threatening or abusive manner at his home on March 21 was deferred until May 11 for reports.

Sheriff John Mundy told Buchanan his excuse for the no-show was “pathetic”.
