A driver in a rush was caught speeding at 85mph after running late for a ferry.


Police stopped Donald Macleod, 67, as he raced along the 60mph zone three miles at Point outside Stornoway.


The TV producer, of Jordanhill, Glasgow, pleaded guilty to speeding on the Bràighe causeway between Point and Stornoway on 23 October.


His lawyer, Angus Macdonald explained to Stornoway Sheriff Court that Macleod was “home” for the Royal National Mòd and was “on his way to catch a ferry.”


Sheriff David Sutherland fined the broadcaster - who did not appear in court - £200. He also imposed four penalty points on his licence.
