An aristocrat caught travelling at more than 100mph on his motorbike has been banned from the road for nine months.

Lord Glamis, 24, was clocked by police at 102.16mph on the A68 in the Borders.

The heir to the title of the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne was not in court to hear his fate as he is working in a mine in Zimbabwe.

Charged under the name of Sam Patrick Glamis, of Glamis Castle, near Forfar, he admitted breaching the A68's 60mph limit on 23 May.

Jedburgh Sheriff Court was told that his licence had accumulated 23 penalty points due to various speeding convictions.

As well as being disqualified, Lord Glamis was fined £500 by Sheriff Kevin Drummond.
