A TILLICOULTRY man gave a false name to police after being stopped for speeding.

It later emerged that David McKenzie had been carrying out repairs to the car but had no permission to drive it.

McKenzie of Cairnton Place, appeared in the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on July 27, on the A876 at the Kilbagie Roundabout, he drove at 88mph in a 60mph limit.

The 28-year-old then gave a false name to police.

He also admitted that as the holder of a provisional driving licence he drove unaccompanied, without 'L' plates and without insurance.

Depute fiscal Sean Iles said police officers had stopped McKenzie for speeding and he gave a false name.

At that point the matter was going to be dealt with by imposing a fine on the person named.

However, McKenzie later went to a police station and admitted he had given false details.

The police also spoke to the man whose name had been given and he said he not been the driver.

He said McKenzie had been carrying out a repair on his car but did not have permission to drive it.

Sheriff Neil Bowie called for reports and McKenzie will be sentenced on December 21.
