Court / Woman denies drink driving charge

A WOMAN from Caithness is set to face trial on a charge of driving while around five times the alcohol limit in the Sella Ness area.

Rachel Jones, of Mid Clyth, Lybster, appeared from custody at the court on Thursday to plead not guilty to the charge.

The 30-year-old was accused of driving with 117 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath on the road at the junction with the B9076 on Wednesday (15 December). The legal limit is 22 microgrammes.

During Thursday’s court hearing Jones had her car seized pending the outcome of the case.

She was released on bail and will next appear in court on 13 April.
