Fiscal depute Victoria Silver told Inverness Sheriff Court that the group was "being very loud and he took out his phone to film them. One girl swiped at the phone to stop him and there was a struggle."

Muldoon admitted punching one 14-year-old girl on the head and pushing another girl of the same age on the body.

Muldoon, whose address was given as Edinburgh Prison, was jailed for six months by Sheriff Gary Aitken who said it was "due to your record."

But the sentence was backdated to January 18, when Muldoon was originally remanded in custody.
