A HILLEND man has appeared in court and admitted stalking offences.

David Macleod, 48, of West Way, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that between June 18-24 in Cardenden, he engaged in a course of conduct which caused a woman fear and alarm.

He sent her messages repeatedly via social media, some of which were of a sexually-offensive nature and included offensive images; attempted to open website accounts in her name, arranged for food to be delivered to her home and posted mail to her home.

Sheriff Craig McSherry called for reports and Macleod will be sentenced on July 17. Bail was granted with the special condition that he stays out of Cardenden.
