IGNORING a court order on New Year’s Day proved to be a costly mistake for a Dunfermline man.

Matthew Fyfe, 28, of Wedderburn Street, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that having been granted bail on December 3, with the conditions that he did not contact a woman nor enter a street in Dunfermline, he breached both these by contacting her and entering that street on January 1.

Sheriff Alastair Brown fined Fyfe £630.
