A TRIAL date has been set for a man accused of driving dangerously at excessive speed while disqualified and uninsured.

Gary Guilfoyle, of Russell Drive, Baillieston, pleaded not guilty to four charges when appearing via videolink from Motherwell at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Thursday morning.

These offences are alleged to have taken place on the B9073 on 28 June last year when Guilfoyle allegedly failed to negotiate a bend resulting in his car leaving the road and overturning.

The 29-year-old also denies failing to provide a specimen of urine at the Gilbert Bain Hospital.

A trial date has been fixed for 18 March next year, and Guilfoyle was released on bail.
