Drove twice without insurance

DRIVING without insurance on two occasions in the space of just over a week landed a man from Sandwick with a fine and penalty points when he appeared at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Thursday.

Anthony Grogan, of Swinister, admitted driving a car without a valid policy at Gulberwick’s Lower Hillside on 13 October and Lerwick’s North Ness Business Park eight days later.

Defending himself, the 23 year old shop assistant took the blame and said it was a “stupid thing to do”.

Sheriff James Scott fined Grogan a total of £400 and also imposed a total of 12 penalty points, but his licence was not revoked.
