A 40-YEAR-OLD woman who was caught drink-driving at more than six-times the legal limit has been banned from the roads.

Fiscal depute Matthew Kerr told Alloa Sheriff Court last Thursday that police received an anonymous phone call from a concerned Tullibody resident at 7.40pm on October 29, 2016.

The caller believed that Lynne Buglass was in her car under the influence of alcohol as she was sitting revving the engine of the vehicle for 30 minutes in the town's Delph Road.

Police traced the accused driving slowly along Manor Crescent. When Buglass was pulled over she was found to have slurred speech, slow reactions and was unsteady on her feet when she got out of the car.

Buglass, formerly of Tullibody but now of York Road in Hartlepool, failed the roadside breath test with 141microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit being 22mg.

At Stirling Police Office it was discovered that the accused was also driving without insurance.

Defending, Stan Quirk claimed his client believed she had insurance at the time, but due to an error now accepts responsibility she did not.

Sheriff David Mackie sentenced Buglass to a Community Payback Order with supervision for 12 months.

The accused was admonished for driving without insurance, but was disqualified from the roads for a year for her boozy blunder.
