A MAN caught drink driving in Kincardine had downed a litre and a half of whisky the night before.

Another motorist was so concerned by James Stark's driving that they contacted the police and followed him until officers arrived.

Stark, 30, of Portal Road, Grangemouth, previously admitted that on September 23 on the A985 approaching Longannet Roundabout, Kincardine and elsewhere in Fife, he rode a motorbike after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in his breath was 70 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 22 microgrammes. He also drove while disqualified.

Defence solicitor Roshni Joshi said: "Mr Stark appreciates that custody will be at the forefront of the courts mind.

"There is a record before the court but he has had no convictions since 2015."

He added: "It was an extremely foolish decision to make."

Sheriff Craig McSherry jailed Stark for eight months and disqualified him from holding a licence for five years.

He said: "I sometimes have sympathy for drivers that have been drinking the night before but may have been driving safely when cases come before the court.

"But in your case you downed one and a half litres of whisky the day before.

"You chose to get on the bike with another person on the back.

"Your driving was so bad that a car followed you and this is your fourth road traffic conviction."
