A LAP dancer accused of breaching the peace by running on to the Open course in her bra and pants was bailed yesterday on condition she stays away from the tournament.

Yvonne Robb, 20, was seen by millions of television viewers during coverage of Thursday's play hugging Tiger Woods as he lined up a putt.

Appearing from custody, Ms Robb stepped into the dock wearing a tight-fitting black top, navy jeans with a sequinned side trim and open-toed black platform sandals.

A dancer at Private Eyes nightclub in Aberdeen, she was bailed by Sheriff Norrie Stein on condition that she does not enter the Carnoustie area for the duration of the competition.

Ms Robb, of Montrose Road, Arbroath, arrived at Arbroath Sheriff Court in a police van after spending a night in the cells and was ushered in, handcuffed, with a jacket over her head.

She pleaded not guilty to charges of conducting herself in a disorderly manner, stripping to her underwear, climbing a barrier fence, running onto the playing surface, taking hold of a player and breaching the peace on Carnoustie Links on July 15.

She also denied attempting to pervert the course of justice by pretending to be someone else after being apprehended by police.

Sheriff Stein granted a bail request from Ms Robb's solicitor, Mr Billy Warden, but added: ''The bail order will be subject to the additional condition that you will not enter within the boundaries of Carnoustie until Monday, July 19.''

Ms Robb, who is single, left the court to face photographers after stopping to put on her make-up which was brought to the court by a friend.

Trial was set for October 7 at Arbroath Sheriff Court.

Meanwhile, ScotRail yesterday admitted its train services to Carnoustie were ''stretched to the limit'' after carrying a record 20,000 golf fans to see the first two days' play of the Open Championship. A ScotRail spokesman said that was more than had taken the train to Leuchars station in Fife during the entire four days of the St Andrews tournament four years ago.

By midday yesterday, nearly 10,000 spectators had travelled by the company's trains for the second round, slightly up on Thursday's figures for the first day's play.

The spokesman added: ''We really are stretched to the limit, but we are trying very hard to keep everyone happy. We have staff giving up their weekends to help out at the stations and we are running every available piece of rolling stock.

''We are doing absolutely the best we can.''

While frustrated train travellers were forced to stand for large parts of their journeys, the AA reported few difficulties on the roads.

The only major snarl-ups were a four-mile tailback on the A930 Broughty Ferry-Carnoustie road around 8.30am, which cleared within half-an-hour, and delays on the A92 at the Claypotts junction in Dundee.

An AA spokeswoman said: ''Traffic has mostly been flowing pretty freely and Tayside Police have to be congratulated for reacting quickly to any trouble spots.

''We are expecting more road traffic at the weekend, but we are confident that people will stagger their journeys through the day so there should be no big problems.

''Motorists should realise that they will just have to be patient if there are any delays because they won't get there any quicker.''
