A teenager vandalised his girlfriend's Dingwall home and then phoned the police to report himself.

Inverness Sheriff Court was told that Robert Mackenzie or McAllister, of Miller Road, Inverness now aged 18, smashed the window of the Burns Crescent property on January 24, last year.

Fiscal depute Victoria Silver told Sheriff Gary Aitken: "He phoned the police to say what he had done and was asked why? He said he was angry as he and his girlfriend had fallen out and he had injured his hand."

Defence solicitor Myhrin Hill said the first offender "had not been managing his emotions terribly well at the time."

She added that he had received upsetting news about the health of a close relative and had been "drinking and dabbling in illicit substances. But that is now under control."

McAllister admitted wilful damage and was fined £245.
