Taxing time for driver

POLICE pounced on a van parked in Huddersfield Street, Galashiels on Monday afternoon which apparently wasn’t showing a tax disc.

Police say that after smelling alcohol the driver gave a positive breathalyser test and that further tests indicated an alleged reading three times the legal limit.

The 42-year-old local man has been charged with drink-driving and also failing to display a tax disc.

The procurator fiscal is being informed.
