A KELTY man caused a disturbance at the home of his former partner, making threats through the letter-box.

Thomas McKay, 46, of Centre Street, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on October 15 last year, at an address in Kelty, he acted aggressively, shouted, swore, made threatening remarks towards his partner repeatedly and struck a door repeatedly

He also breached a court order banning him from that street.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said the couple had been in a three-year relationship.

McKay had sent messages saying she had better let him in or he would damage the property.

He then turned up at the house, shouting through the letter-box and telling her to open the front door or he would smash all the windows.

Sheriff Alastair Brown imposed a community payback order with 130 hours of unpaid work and a one-year non-harassment order.
