AN ALLOA man caused a disturbance at a hospital, making threats of violence just before Christmas.

As a result, 35-year-old Scott Burns, of Whins Road, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on December 23, at the Forth Valley Royal Hospital, he shouted, swore, made threats of violence and homophobic remarks.

Sheriff Garry Sutherland called for reports and Burns will be sentenced on March 28.
