As reported in many different places in the Scottish media, a man accused of robbing a Post Office has been banned from Scotland.
The man in question lives in England (only just) and has been charged with assault and robbery. He appeared at Selkirk Sheriff Court and was granted bail with the condition that he does not enter Scotland (other than to stand trial, of course).
It is hoped that other potential criminals will be deterred by the Scots Border Guards established to enforce the bail conditions. If convicted, the man faces deportation to St. Kilda.
