Driver Michael Henderson fined after lorry flipped onto Lonmay house

A driver whose articulated lorry flipped onto an Aberdeenshire house has been fined £500.

Michael Henderson, 54, was transporting slabs to a stone company in Lonmay when the crash happened on the A90 Fraserburgh to Peterhead road in June last year.

Henderson, of Grangemouth, was found guilty of careless driving at Peterhead Sheriff Court.

Sheriff Andrew Miller also gave him six penalty points.

The home owner, Alexander Smith, said he was now planning to launch a claim for compensation due to the damage caused.

He added: "I would have thought the fine would have been more. I think £500 is not enough."
