Appearing at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, Quigley (37) had admitted breaching COVID-19 regulations and possessing class B drug cannabis at her River Street, Carron home on November 14 last year.

Simon Hutchison, defence solicitor, told the court Quigley was making good inroads into the community payback order, which ends on May 8, she received as punishment for her crimes and only had seven hours of her unpaid work left to complete.

He added: “It’s quite a feat for someone from her background to have got rid of all those unpaid work hours. She’s done pretty well in the last wee while to stay out of trouble.”
