A 33-year-old fisherman took a knuckleduster with him when he went to recover a debt.

But police had been called to a house in Strathkinnaird, near Ullapool, on March 28, 2019 when Oliver Humphreys and three others got involved in an argument.

Inverness Sheriff Court was told that officers searched Humphreys' van and found the weapon.

Humphreys, of Market Street, Ullapool admitted unlawful possession of a weapon in a public place and was fined £1500 by Sheriff Gary Aitken.
