A COCKENZIE woman has appeared in court accused of assaulting her partner with a toilet roll.

Karen Cosgrove is said to have attacked Stephen McKinnon with the roll of paper during an incident at her home address earlier this month.

Cosgrove is also alleged to have shouted out that Mr McKinnon was hitting her when in fact he was not. It is alleged Cosgrove, from North Lorimer Place, was being watched by neighbours when she made the false attack comments.

The 38-year-old denies the charges and will return to court for trial in August 3.
