A woman who called emergency services when they were not needed is to be sentenced next month.

Sandra Dickson, 44, pleaded guilty to one charge at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week.

Dickson contacted emergency services unnecessarily at her home address in Stevenston’s Wheatley Road on September 19 2017.

She then shouted, swore and uttered offensive remarks.

Dickson was absent from court and made her plea through her solicitor.

Sentence was deferred until March 8.
