Have your say

A Cockburnspath mother-of-three who embezzled more than £10,000 from a children’s nursery will be sentenced later this month.

Tracey Docherty (37) took the cash over a 15-month period after being appointed treasurer of Cockburnspath Village Nursery.

Docherty, 12 Hoprig Park, Cockburnspath, had admitted the charge during an earlier appearance at Haddington Sheriff Court, and appeared in the dock again for sentencing on Wednesday.
