A woman has admitted keying cars in her Moray hometown of Buckie after footage of the vandalism went viral.

Hazel Innes, 44, scratched the side of three cars while out walking her dog.

One owner, Shona Coull, caught Innes in the act in January after setting up a CCTV camera outside her home. The video was viewed more than 500,000 times after it was posted online.

Innes admitted vandalism at Elgin Sheriff Court. Sentence was deferred for reports.

Ms Coull posted the 23-second video of her white BMW X3 being damaged on social media in the hope that someone would recognise the culprit.
