A FOUL-MOUTHED husband has been banned from seeing or contacting his wife after an aggressive outburst towards her at the home they shared in Ardrossan.

Christopher Ramsay told his wife of 15 years that she would “never get in this house again” during the outburst at the property in Montfode Drive last month.

But Ramsay – “ironically” in the words of his own solicitor – has now moved out of the house.

The 57-year-old pleaded guilty at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week to a single charge in relation to the incident, which happened on November 14.

Ramsay, who now lives in Loch Place in Bridge of Weir with another family member, admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and uttering derogatory remarks towards his wife and another man.

The procurator fiscal depute said the incident happened when Ramsay’s wife returned home from babysitting two children, adding that Ramsay and his wife were no longer together at the time, though they were still living at the same address.

The court heard Ramsay’s wife had gone outside to speak to another man – at which point Ramsay stormed outside and launched his outburst at the pair.

The fiscal depute said Ramsay had used the phrase “f*****g ginger b*****d”, told his wife to “get the f*** away”, and said “you will never get in this house again.

He added “get off my property, ginger b*****d” and called his wife a “s**g”.

Ramsay’s solicitor told Sheriff Thomas Ward there had “been a build-up in the relationship for some time” and that this was the “precise moment where everyone who was involved in the relationship decided that it couldn’t go on”.

The lawyer said Ramsay and his wife, who had been together for 18 years, were now beginning divorce proceedings.

Sheriff Thomas Waard fined Ramsay £210 and imposed a non-harassment order which will bar him from any form of contact or attempted contact with her for 12 months.
