A DUNFERMLINE teenager who was caught drink-driving when more than four times over the limit has been sentenced.

Charlie Kay, 19, of Regulus Street, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He previously admitted that on December 10 last year on Hospital Hill he drove a car having consumed excess alcohol.

His reading was 98 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the limit being 22 millilitres.

He was 18 at the time and when he appeared initially in court in January he was put on a structured deferred sentence.

Sheriff Susan Duff told Kay at that time: “This is not a great way to start your driving career.”

When he returned to court, the sheriff said Kay had done well on the structured deferred sentence.

She imposed a 12-month driving ban backdated to January when an interim disqualification had been put in place.
