A drink driver who collided with another vehicle has been disqualified for five years.

Lewis Gregor Macdonald pleaded guilty to the offence plus a second charge of careless driving when he appeared at Stornoway Sheriff Court.

The court heard the 35-year-old welder - whose address was given as South Dell, Ness, indicated left to turn into a driveway in Upper Bayble, Point, but slightly pulled out to the right for what would be a tight manoeuvre on a single track village road.  

But a car behind collided with him and Macdonald’s Ford Focus was shunt down the road for a short distance.

One passenger in the other car sustained minor injuries.

The court heard Macdonald had been caught drink driving twice in the past ten years.

Sheriff David Sutherland imposed a driving ban.

He also placed Macdonald on supervision for two years and ordered him to carry out 180 hours of unpaid community service work.
