A police officer has been fined £500 after being found guilty of careless driving following a crash which left a pedestrian injured.

Allan Masson, 43, crashed his police car in icy conditions on the Inverurie to Chapel of Garioch road in Aberdeenshire in March 2013.

He was initially charged with dangerous driving, but was later found guilty of the lesser charge of careless driving.
