Rescue crews sworn at by man
Police and an ambulance crew were shouted and sworn at by a 22-yearold Inverness man who they were trying to rescue from the Caledonian Canal.
Stephen Urquhart, of Cameron Crescent, Munlochy,
“Shouting and uttering offensive marks”
sparked a rescue at Muirtown Basin on May 21. At Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday, he admitted obstructing the emergency services by refusing lifesaving equipment to remove him from the canal and shouting, swearing and uttering offensive marks.
Sentence was deferred until November 9 for background reports.
