Appearing at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, Steven Moffat (32) admitted breaching his bail conditions by entering the address at Ard Court, Grangemouth and contacting a woman there on June 13.

The court heard the woman told police she hadn’t had any contact with Moffat, but officers later found him hiding in a cupboard in the house.

Moffat, 10 Ard Court, Grangemouth, was told to pay £200 to the sheriff clerk’s office within seven days or go to jail. If he was of good behaviour over a period of six months he would get the money back.
