Walker’s defence lawyer said a search was carried out by police and the items were recovered along with text messages on his phone. These messages indicated that the drugs were for supply rather than his own use.

His lawyer said: “He has made efforts to work on his drug problem, he has been working with addiction services.”

Sheriff McFarlane placed him on a community payback order for a year and as part of it, to comply with a drug treatment requirement.
