A man who attacked an ambulance worker called out to help him is “sorry” for his actions, a court was told.

Scott Findlater, 47, admitted assaulting a paramedic by repeatedly pushing him.

He also kicked him on February 12 at an address in Lumphanan.

The court heard the paramedic and a co-worker had been asked to attend at Findlater’s address just after 11.30pm, after a report he had “banged his head”.

Defence agent Les Green said his client had been drinking on the night of the incident, and said: “He is sincerely sorry”.

Findlater, of Millan View, Lumphanan, was handed a £300 fine.
