He admitted that on December 9 in McKinlay Crescent, Alloa, he drove while disqualified.

He also drove after consuming excess alcohol. His reading was 63 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the limit being 22 microgrammes.

Sheriff Neil Bowie told Hunter: “This is the third occasion you have been convicted of drink driving in less than a year and your second offence of driving while disqualified.”

Sheriff Bowie jailed Hunter for 160 days. He also banned him from driving for four years and until he passes the extended test.
