A WOMAN was injured when her husband grabbed her by the neck on New Year’s Day.

Alexander Tebbutt, 49, now of St Colme Road, Dalgety Bay, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on January 1, at Violet Bank, Bogside Station, he assaulted his partner by seizing her by the neck to her injury.

Sheriff James Macdonald commented that Tebbutt had an analogous previous conviction.

He called for reports and Tebbutt will be sentenced on February 10.
