Driver charged over alcohol

A man has been charged with drink-driving after he was stopped behind the wheel while allegedly almost twice the legal limit.

Police stopped a BMW car in Melrose Road, Galashiels, at about 1.40am on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old driver from Melrose smelled of alcohol and allegedly failed to provide a sufficient specimen for a roadside breath test and was arrested.

A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
