AN Easter Ross woman returned to her old habit of making nuisance 999 calls after the death of a close family member during the festivities.

Elizabeth Gibson (23) of Westford, Alness appeared from custody at Inverness Sheriff Court on Saturday, January 2 and admitted wasting the time of the emergency authorities on December 31.

She also admitted resisting arrest when police arrived at her home later that evening.

Sheriff Gary Aitken heard that Gibson had locked her arms, kicked out and attempted to break free from four police officers. Gibson also admitted previous convictions, many for similar offences.

Defence solicitor Neil Wilson said his client was on several community payback orders and was due to appear at Tain Sheriff Court on January 11 on a deferred sentence for a similar offence.

Sheriff Aitken deferred sentence until that date at Tain and remanded her in custody.
