THERE was no festive cheer shown by a Dunfermline man to police officers on Christmas Day.

The antics of John Taylor, 30, of Broomhead Drive, landed him in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on December 25, at St Andrews Street, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and acting aggressively towards police officers.

Sentence was deferred for reports until July 24.
