David Morrison, 9 Keith Crescent, Kincardine, was initially disqualified from driving for six months in January.

He then admitted getting behind the wheel in Bank Street – while he was on bail – on May 1.

The 32-year-old appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday alongside defence solicitor Dick Sandeman, who said his client appreciated it was a “foolish thing to do”.

Mr Sandeman added: “He knows he’s going to be disqualified for a more significant period than he was on the last occasion.”

The court was told Morrison is employed as a joiner and could pay a “large fine”.

He was disqualified for a year and had his licence endorsed.

Morrison was also ordered to carry out 160 hours of unpaid work within 12 months as an alternative to custody.
