A Thurso woman who attacked two cars with a screwdriver in Wick could face a substantial compensation bill as well as a punishment penalty.

Kyrah Shepherd admitted wilful and reckless damage at Wick Sheriff Court and will be sentenced next month.

Sheriff Mark Lindsay, KC was told that the 24-year-old's first target was a BMW X3 outside Lornhaven, Port Dunbar, Wick, on February 27.

She repeatedly struck the bodywork and wing mirrors with the screwdriver before turning her attention to a Fiat Bravo which she repeatedly kicked, and struck the windows and wing mirrors using the same tool.

Fiscal Depute Grant McLennan said that the repairs to each vehicle were likely to be "a couple of thousand pounds" but a continuation of the case would allow him to obtain an accurate figure.

Sheriff Lindsay commented: "I was not aware the damage was so significant. Compensation orders spring to mind."

He continued the case until April 17 for the repairs report and also called for a background report which he will consider before passing sentence.

Shepherd, of Strathmore Court, Pennyland, Thurso, also admitted a previous record of offending.
