Thomas Thornton (22), 31 Tweed Street, Grangemouth, failed to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday.

Thornton, who admitted assaulting his partner in River Street, Bainsford, on July 3, was in England claiming to be too ill to travel back. Sheriff Simon Collins ordered a warrant for Thornton’s arrest, stating he was not “taking this matter seriously.”
