A TRANENT man who breached a court order banning him from contacting a woman has been ordered to be of good behaviour.

Thomas McLean, of Coalgate Road, was handed a non-harassment order at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on February 22 instructing him not to contact or approach the woman.

But the 55-year-old breached the order by contacting her at her home on July 20 and 21.

McLean pleaded guilty to breaching the non-harassment order when he appeared in the dock last month.

He returned to court for sentencing last week, where Sheriff Alistair Noble told him he had to stay out of trouble for the next six months. Sentence was deferred to February 20.
