A Scottish Borders Council member has been fined£500 after a sheriff found him guilty of spitting at a female rider and swearing at others taking part in Common Riding in Hawick, the Herald reports (p9).

John Rudkin had been found guilty of breach of the peace, as women riders were attempting to break the male domination of the event at a ride between Hawick and the village of Denholm last June.
