Procurator fiscal depute Catherine Fraser said: “Police attended in response to a male loitering around the close door and traced the accused.”

Sheriff Livingston told Cordiner: “I will give you a chance.”

He was made subject to a two-month restriction of liberty order and must stay within his home from 7pm until 7am each day.
