A WOMAN who made racist remarks to two shopkeepers in Clydebank almost two years ago has been ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work.

Georgette Ravatte, 22, appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court for sentencing over an incident at the Lifestyle Express in Webster Street on June 18, 2017.

In a separate incident, she made threats of violence towards a 16-year-old in August 2017 at Brunswick House, Mountblow.

And in March this year, she assaulted two members of staff and a cop at Clydebank police office.

Sheriff Maxwell Hendry deferred sentences on the August 2017 and March 2019 cases.

He said: "I'm giving you a chance today. At 22, this might almost be the last chance you get."

As well as the unpaid work, Ravatte, now of Banner Driver, Knightswood, will be under social work supervision for the next two years.
