A Galashiels man has appeared in private at Jedburgh Sheriff Court charged with attempted murder.

It follows an incident in the Glendinning Terrace area of the town on Tuesday night when a 31-year-old man suffered injuries.

Alexander Kenmuir, 39, has also been accused of threatening or abusive behaviour.

He made no plea or declaration during a brief private hearing and the case was continued for further examination.

Mr Kenmuir was remanded in custody and is expected to appear in court again on 28 December.
