Man denies Kirkconnel war memorial vandalism on Armistice Day

A man has denied defacing a town's war memorial hours before an Armistice Day service was due to take place in the south of Scotland.

David Baillie, 21, of Sandyknowe Crescent, Kelloholm, lodged special defences of alibi and incrimination.

He is accused of causing a breach of the peace by painting slogans on the Kirkconnel landmark on 11 November last year while acting with another person.

He also denied a charge of threatening a person he knew to be a case witness.

The case, at Dumfries Sheriff Court, was continued for a week.
