Police saw a motorist negotiate an exit from a Nairn service station and collide with a bollard.

Officers moved in to test 37-year-old Gregg Main, of Burnside, Nairn at the West End Service Station in Inverness Road on April 20, this year and could smell alcohol from him, fiscal depute Adele Gray told Inverness Sheriff Court.

Defending, Marc Dickson said: "He was at a family get-together, returned home and borrowed his father's car to do an errand. He made a very significant mistake."

Main admitted driving with 79mcgs of alcohol in his system when the legal limit is 22mcgs.

He was fined £320 and banned from driving for a year.

Main was deemed suitable by Sheriff Sara Matheson for the drink-drive rehabilitation scheme which will earn him a three-month discount if he successfully completes it.
