A property letting company owner who was checking on one of her Highland properties was caught by police driving at almost twice the 30mph speed limit.

June Ross, a 57 year old divorced mother of four of King's Ford Road, Alford, was clocked at 56mph in a 30mph zone in Carrbridge on December 6, 2020.

Police were in an unmarked vehicle outside the Carrbridge Hotel carrying out speed checks.

Defence agent Rory Gowans said his client had properties in Spain and around Scotland and that was why she was in the area in her Ford Fiesta van.

He added: "It was a lack of concentration as she didn't realise it was a 30mph zone.

"This was in mid-lockdown with next to nothing on the road and she put her foot down. She already had six points on her licence."

Ross avoided an automatic ban under the 12 point totting up procedure at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday when Sheriff Ian Cruickshank endorsed her licence with five penalty points and fined her £580.
