A Dunfermline delivery driver who had just finished his shift was four times over the limit when police stopped him.

The sozzled delivery man was 48-year-old Ludwik Pilch, of Fyne Brae, who appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court accompanied by a translator.

He admitted that on 28th August in Kings Road, Rosyth, he drove a car having consumed excess alcohol.

His reading was 99 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the legal limit being 22 microgrammes.

Depute fiscal Laura McManus said that at 9.55pm police stopped Pilch’s car and could smell alcohol from him.

Defence solicitor Lucy Martin said her client was a part-time delivery driver and also received benefits.

He had just finished a delivery shift when he was stopped.

Pilch, who has lived in Scotland since 2005, was “remorseful and embarrassed” about his actions, she added.

Sheriff Wylie Robertson deferred sentence until 18th October and imposed a temporary driving ban until then.
