An Inverness man found behind the wheel with alcohol in his system will learn his fate next month.

Stephen Connor (45) was pulled over by police on the city’s Millburn Road as he made his way to work, Inverness Sheriff Court was told.

Police had been on patrol in an unmarked car when they ran the registration plate of Connor’s Vauxhall Corsa van on the morning of August 24 last year.

The vehicle was found to have no MOT so the officers pulled him over and noticed the smell of alcohol.

He was arrested after failing a roadside test and was later found to have 83 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of urine.

The legal limit in Scotland is 67mg.

Sheriff Sara Matheson deferred sentence until August 25 for the preparation of background reports and an assessment into the suitability of a restriction of liberty order.

Connor, of Ashton Crescent, was disqualified from driving in the interim.
