Galashiels men face murder bid charges

Two men have appeared in court charged with attempted murder following an incident on a Borders housing estate.

Michael Gilbert, 26, and Robert Gregg, 38, both of Galashiels, are accused of assaulting a man to his severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

It follows an early morning incident in Langlee - the largest housing estate in Galashiels - on Saturday.

Both men made no plea or declaration at Selkirk Sheriff Court and their cases were continued for further examination.

Mr Gregg also faces a charge of being in possession of a bladed item in a public place.

The men were remanded in custody by Sheriff Peter Paterson and are expected to appear in court again next Tuesday.
