A CLYDEBANK man has been banned from driving for the rest of his life.

Scott Drummond, 30, was already disqualified when he was caught behind the wheel with no insurance in Drummore Road on January 13 this year.

When busted by the police, he told officers he'd 'only been driving for 10 minutes'.

Drummond's defence agent stated: "He has an extensive record, I accept that."

Despite the accused claiming it was a "one-off", it was highlighted that he was already subject to a driving ban until at least 2025.

As a direct alternative to custody, Sheriff Allan Findlay sentenced the accused to a Restriction of Liberty Order in which he will have to remain at home in Cambridge Avenue between the hours of 7pm and 7am for nine months.

Drummond was also handed a Community Payback Order with 250 hours of unpaid work.

For driving whilst disqualified, he was banned for life and had his licence endorsed. His licence was additionally marked for getting behind the wheel with no insurance.
