A driver was found to be more than four times the legal drink-driving limit.

Cecelia Cadzow, a 31-year-old freelance chef, was fined £500 at Wick Sheriff Court and banned from driving for 16 months after she pleaded guilty.

Police investigating a collision involving Cadzow's vehicle, at Shebster, late on January 14, had cause to give her a roadside breath test which proved positive.

A follow-up test revealed a level of 99mg – the legal limit is 22mg.

Sheriff Neil Wilson commented on the high reading adding that Cadzow, of Inland Pastures Farm Cottages, Scremerston, Northumberland, had made "a foolish mistake" in deciding to drive.
