His solicitor told the court the 53-year-old oil worker of Dalmore had just come off the rigs the previous day. He had consumed alcohol into the early hours plus a further dram in the morning.

Sheriff David Sutherland disqualified the first offender and imposed a £600 fine to be paid within a month.
