A DUNFERMLINE man caused a disturbance by shouting, swearing and refusing to leave a local supermarket.

As a result, Paul Reid, 41, of New Row, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on June 30, at Asda, St Leonard's Street, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by refusing to leave the premises when asked to do so, shouted, swore and refused to desist.

Defence solicitor Roshni Joshi said: “He has a long-standing alcohol difficulty.”

Sheriff Charles MacNair called for reports and Reid will be sentenced on July 31.
