A ROSYTH man who ignored a driving ban is behind bars.

Graeme Kennedy, 29, of Primrose Avenue, Rosyth, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on October 18, in Brankholm Brae, Rosyth, he drove when disqualified and without insurance.

It was the second time Kennedy had been caught flouting the ban.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said police on mobile patrol saw the vehicle being driven by Kennedy at 6.20am.

Checks were carried out and as a result, Kennedy was stopped. He had been banned from driving until he sat the extended test but did not do this.

Defence solicitor Roshni Joshi said Kennedy had an “unenviable record” for road traffic offences.

“He was given the opportunity of employment and took it. He was on his way to pick up his boss when he was stopped,” she added.

Sheriff Alastair Brown called for reports and Kennedy was remanded in custody until sentencing on March 2.
