A MUSSELBURGH man who assaulted his former partner has been ordered to pay a fine.

Joe Armstrong assaulted the woman by pinning her to a bed during a domestic incident at an address at Salters Road in Wallyford.

Armstrong, 24, committed the offence between March 1 and April 30, 2016.

Armstrong, of Cottage Lane, appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last week where he pleaded guilty to the attack.

Sheriff Kenneth Campbell fined him £225.
