A SCORE was settled behind bars when a prisoner attacked a fellow inmate he accused of assaulting him.

Liam McIntosh, of Birchwood Court, Inverness, head-butted another prisoner then repeatedly punched him when the two met in HMP Inverness on April 4.

Inverness Sheriff Court heard McIntosh had been the other man’s victim in a previous offence.

McIntosh admitted a charge of assault to severe injury whereby his victim required six stitches to a wound.

He was sentenced to 180 hours of unpaid work and placed under 18 months of social work supervision.
