Ronald Cresswell (61), 19 Camelon Road, Falkirk, made racially abusive remarks towards Sukhwinder Singh in Grahams Road, Falkirk, on July 6.

Creswell was convicted of acting in a racially aggravated manner and due to be sentenced at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, but his lawyer explained he was not present because he had been taken to hospital following a fall.

Sheriff John Mundy fined Cresswell £200 in his absence and gave him 28 days to pay.
