A 63-year-old Wellwood man has appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for domestic abuse.

Frederick Crosby, of Burt Street, admitted that on August 27 at an address in Wedderburn Crescent in Dunfermline, he engaged in a course of conduct abusive of his then partner by acting aggressively, shouting, swearing and making a threat of violence.

Defence solicitor Stephen Morrison said: “He now regards the marriage as being over.”

Sheriff James MacDonald called for reports and Crosby will be sentenced on December 18.
