A CROSSGATES man has finally been sentenced for drink-driving committed almost two years ago.

Barry Robertson, 43, of Hillview Crescent, Crossgates, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on June 27, 2020 at Broad Street, Cowdenbeath, he drove a car having consumed excess alcohol.

His reading was 42 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the limit being 22 microgrammes.

The court was told police officers could smell alcohol from Robertson’s breath after stopping his car at 9.40pm.

He told them he drank a bottle of wine 4.30am that morning.

Sheriff David Hall banned Robertson from driving for a year and ordered him to complete 75 hours of unpaid work.
