AN ARREST warrant has been issued for a Port Glasgow man after he failed to appear in court for trial on a charge of self harming in public.

William King, 28, is accused of causing blood to run down his body, running past people and committing a breach of the peace in the town.

King, of Teviot Road, is also charged with obstructing police and running off after declaring that he was suicidal.

The alleged offences are said to have occurred at Auchenbothie Road, Methil Road and Campsie Road on June 9.
