Sentence has been deferred on a woman after her dog bit a post office worker.

Fiona Gilbert (39) admitted a charge under the dangerous dogs act at Inverness Sheriff Court.

Court papers said Gilbert, of Railway Terrace, Kyle of Lochalsh, was not in control of her Staffordshire Bull Terrier on September 21, 2020, when it lunged at and bit John McLean who was delivering mail to her home address.

Sentence was deferred until June 23 for the preparation of background reports.

She was ordained to appear by Sheriff Gary Aitken.
