A man has appeared in court charged with assaulting another man to his severe injury in Kelso at the weekend.

Joshua Watson, 23, from the town, appeared in private at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.

It follows an incident in The Square, in Kelso, during the early hours of Sunday morning when a 27-year-old man suffered serious facial injuries.

Mr Watson made no plea or declaration and his case was continued for further examination.

He was released on bail by Sheriff Peter Paterson.
