A drug-driver has been banned from the roads for two years after being caught under the influence of cannabis.

Andrew Gray (25) was disqualified from driving and holding a licence for 24 months after appearing at Inverness Sheriff Court and admitting the charge against him.

Gray, of Murray Terrace, Inverness, was pulled over by a marked police car on January 25.

It happened this year on the A82 road near the Telford Street roundabout.

Fiscal depute Emma MacEwan said: “The vehicle pulled over into a car park.

“There was a strong smell of cannabis coming from inside the car.

“No drugs were found in the vehicle.”

The court heard Gray had smoked the drug the night before.

He was also fined £200.
