A man’s been charged with careless driving after a single-vehicle road accident at Direcleit in Harris on Friday afternoon (October 25th).

The 34-year-old driver was cautioned and charged by police after his car was involved in an accident on the A859 at 4pm on Friday.

He was charged with careless driving and issued with a fixed penalty of £100, plus three penalty points on his license.

In a separate incident on Friday, a 32-year-old woman was involved in an accident at the Perceval Road roundabout in Stornoway at 4.45pm.

No-one was injured, but after investigation the woman was charged with careless driving and is to be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

Also on Friday night, a 26-year-old man was observed by police to be speeding at Perceval Road. He was offered and refused a fixed penalty and is therefore to be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
