A MAN was remanded in custody for a psychiatric report after admitting a bail breach because he wanted to cut his nails.

Inverness Sheriff Court was told George Wright (26) had been banned from visiting a house in Beauly.

But he went there on June 1 this year to collect some of his belongings, including a pair of nail clippers.

The court heard that he told his solicitor, John MacColl: "How else am I supposed to cut my nails."

Mr MacColl told Sheriff David Sutherland: "This man needs social work intervention. He has some mental health issues and lacks comprehension."

Wright, of Wyvis Drive, Nairn, had sentence deferred until July 31 for a psychiatric report and was further remanded.
