A student has been banned from the road for 40 months at Selkirk Sheriff Court and fined £200 after admitting driving while almost four and a half times the legal alcohol limit.

Tammy Strafford, of Bridge Street in Galashiels, already had a previous conviction for drink-driving in 2017, meaning that she would have to be disqualified for a minimum of three years.

The 26-year-old pleaded guilty to driving with a breath-alcohol count of 97 microgrammes, the legal limit being 22, on the B710 Clovenfords-to-Bowland road on Sunday, April 14.
