A motorist has been fined after driving too fast and crashing into a fence.
Stornoway Sheriff Curt heard Sean Angus lost control of his vehicle after coming
round a bend at excessive speed. The vehicle steered to the other side of the road,
mounted the verge and collided with fencing before landing up in a field.
Both vehicle and fence were damaged in the incident which occurred last summer.
Sheriff David Sutherland fined him £300.
Six penalty points were imposed on Angus, whose address was given as Keneth Street,
Stornoway, which - under the totting up procedure - resulted in him losing his licence
for six months.
