Thurso driver will stand trial at Wick Court

A THURSO motorist has denied driving while more than four times the legal limit.
Graham Rowbotham, 53, of 9 Brabster, Street, Thurso, pleaded not guilty when he appeared from custody at Wick Sheriff Court today.
The charge alleges that he had a breath-alcohol level of 151mgs - the limit is 35mgs - when he was stopped by police in Sir George's Street, Thurso, on Sunday.
Sheriff Andrew Berry granted an application by the prosecution to have the accused's car impounded until the outcome of the case is known after his trial on October 30th.
