A man has been cleared of breaking a pool cue over his partner’s head.

Christopher Neilson, 27, was found not guilty by a majority verdict after a two-day jury trial at Livingston Sheriff Court.

He had denied assaulting Pamela Frame to the danger of her life and threatening her with a knife in their home in Addiewell, West Lothian, last November 11.

The jury also returned a not proven verdict on a second charge alleging that he behaved in a threatening and abusive manner towards Ms Frame.
