The court heard McDonald, 26 Ladeside Crescent, Stenhousemuir, was “well on course” to completing his community payback order.

Sheriff Eric Brown did not see any need for a further review of the order.

He added: “Keep on target and you won’t have to come back – the only reason you would have to come back to court would be if you breach the order.”
