However, the 20-year-old was not present.

Explaining the reasoning behind his client’s absence, defence solicitor Simon Hutchison told Sheriff Derek Livingston: “She’s got an isolation note and has been told to wait for a test because she’s living with someone with symptoms of coronavirus.”

Sheriff Livingston deferred sentence on Munro until Thursday, February 25 for her to appear in relation to the charges in person.
