A motorist from Jedburgh, Scotland, who was found to be more than five times the legal alcohol limit after being involved in an accident, has been banned from the road for two years at the town's Sheriff Court.
Thirty two year old Alistair McBain of High Street, recorded a breath reading of 115 microgrammes - the legal limit being 22 microgrammes. The court heard McBain struck a car which had been slowing down on the A68 at Ancrum at lunchtime on Friday, June 2.
Ambulance staff at the scene called the police and McBain gave what was described as a "very high level of reading." In addition to the 24 month ban, he was fined £200.
The Sheriff told the man the amount of alcohol he'd had was enough "to kill some people".Read the full story ›

It's expected that the event will bring a welcomed boost to the region's economy, with thousands of spectators expected over the weekend of 18th March.
A strong contingent of local rally drivers will be among the favourites to win the event. These include reigning Scottish Champion and Castle Douglas driver Jock Armstrong, Duns driver Garry Pearson and 2011 British Rally Champion David Bogie from Dumfries.
