Cock in the Dock!

Kenneth Williamson, the owner of a neighbour nuisance cockerel, was back in Court on Friday. He admitted failing to comply with a court order, issued in November 2007, to prevent it crowing early in the morning.

The five-year-old bird, known as “Charlie” was to have been kept in a lightproof shed, but Mr. Williamson had failed to construct the new dwellings on the correct site. In so doing, he breached the breached the Civic Government (Scotland) Act. Scottish Borders Council had previously applied to Selkirk Sheriff Court for an anti-social behaviour order on the bird, but the current action was raised by neighbours.

Mr Williamson is due to be sentenced on 4th September 2008, but is unlikely to be given a custodial sentence, thereby making him a jailbird!
