Noisy neighbours prompted a Dingwall man to angrily confront the family.

But George Reid (55) of Peffery Road, shouted and swore and police were called to the property on November 6, 2019.

Inverness Sheriff Court heard that his victims didn't understand all what was being said because of a language barrier.

Reid admitted threatening behaviour and was fined £360.

Defence solicitor Rory Gowans explained that his client had been the victim of a scaffolding fall 30 years ago and had suffered a significant brain injury.

"As a result, he has constant headaches, the neighbours' kids were noisy and he went to protest.

"But there were better ways of dealing with this than the way he did."
