A Wick driver has been cleared on a charge of careless driving.

Lewis Geddes was alleged to have "jumped the lights" at a temporary road works near the Stainland Straight of the A9, on May 3, last year, and collided with an oncoming vehicle.

The 19-year-old, of Argyle Square, Wick, pleaded not guilty at Wick Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

A submission by solicitor Fiona MacDonald at the end of the trial, that the brakes of the accused's Golf GTi had suddenly failed, was upheld by Sheriff Neil Wilson who held there was no case to answer and found him not guilty of the offence.
