Four motorists were hit with fines and will have three points added to their licences after a “proactive” road patrol in Grangemouth yesterday.

Police say a car was seized after the owner was found to be driving without insurance.

But a passenger said to have been caught in possession of cannabis was let off with a police warning.

The motorists police said were speeding were handed £100 fixed penalty notices.

PC Mitchell of the community police team said “We regularly receive complaints from residents and councilors about speeding vehicles in built up areas.

“Proactive patrols such as these send a clear message that we treat road safety as a priority.

“We will continue to carry out hand held radar checks across the area to deter drivers from speeding and make our roads safer”.
