An Aberdeen man caught driving while disqualified for the seventh time has been banned from the road for life.

David Wood, 28, of Sheddocksley Road, was stopped by a mobile patrol on the A74(M) near Lockerbie.

Sheriff George Jamieson told him: "You have a dreadful driving record showing a disregard of the law."

Wood, who admitted driving while banned, without insurance and giving false details to the police, was also jailed for a year.

Dumfries Sheriff Court heard that he had last been banned at Aberdeen Sheriff Court for 10 years - until 2019.

Solicitor Alasdair Oag said the latest offence had happened when Wood was on his way to visit his girlfriend in Annan.

His father had been driving but Wood had taken over when he complained of feeling unwell.
