Hay breached his bail conditions when he entered Arthur's Drive in Stenhousemuir

The court heard this was the first review of Hay’s drug treatment and testing order and he had committed no further offences.

It was stated he had one negative test, but the rest were all positive for drugs.

Sheriff Simon Collins QC fixed a further review of the order for September 17 and told Hay, Flat 12, 1 Paton Drive, Larbert, he should attend all appointments provide at least one negative drug test – “otherwise it’s just a waste of time”.
