A bloggee asks
if Sheriff Kevin of Duns is still functioning. Yes he is but obviously took his time to recover from the usual Scottish excesses of Hogmanay. His court is back insession and judging from the courts report in the Berwickshire crime in the county is back to its dull and uninspiring routine. Speeding (two motorists at over 100mph on Borders' roads!), careless driving, no insurance and a more unusual case of two teenage sisters who assaulted 'another woman' in a row over her boyfriend-a sort of love quadrilangle apparently. The case turned on whether one of the sisters realised that the bottle she threw (and struck) the woman was plastic (as she claimed to think) rather than glass (as it was) . No involvement in reported crime by guest workers (Portuguese) or asylum seekers (eastern European) thus temporaily stilling some of the less well informed speculation at the pub.
