A MAN who sent threatening and abusive texts and social media messages to his daughter has been told to keep his nose clean until the new year.

William Wood, 40, sent texts and Facebook messages, in which he swore and made derogatory remarks to his daughter, at a property in Angus Avenue in Clydebank on March 30.

He also attended the home address of his daughter and his ex-partner and shouted, swore and behaved in an aggressive manner.

Wood, of Broomhill Path in Glasgow, was ordered to be of good behaviour for three months after admitting the offence.

But at a further hearing at Dumbarton Sheriff Court last Friday, he was told he wasn’t out of the woods just yet.

On being told Wood had stayed out of trouble since a previous court appearance, Sheriff Maxwell Hendry told him: “It’s good that you’ve done what you were told to do, but that’s not necessarily the end of the matter. I’m deliberately continuing this matter beyond Christmas and New Year to see whether celebrations can be conducted appropriately.”
