A 38-year-old man has appeared in court for bombarding his ex-partner with unwanted phone calls and messages.

In the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court was Barry Gibson, of Broad Street, Cowdenbeath.

He admitted that between December 16 last year and January 1 at Martin Crescent, Ballingry, he repeatedly contacted his former partner by phone, text and social media, despite having been repeatedly asked to desist from such contact.

He also repeatedly attempted to contact her via family members, attended uninvited at her home and left gifts there.

Sentence was deferred for reports until June 15.
