An anonymous tip-off to police led to a 25-year-old Ardersier man being arrested for drink driving.

Aiden Ward, of Nairn Road, appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday and admitted driving with excess alcohol on May 15 on the B9039, near its junction with the A96 Inverness to Aberdeen road.

He was almost five times the legal limit. Ward was fined £667 and banned from driving for 14 months.
