A MAN was caught behind the wheel of a car near Helensburgh while disqualified from driving.

Police spotted a male driving a Vauxhall Corsa near to Auchendennan Bay, on the banks of Loch Lomond, on Friday evening, October 2 and a check reportedly revealed that only a female was insured to drive the vehicle.

Officers stopped the car after it was confirmed that the male driver, a 43-year-old from Glasgow, was disqualified from driving and therefore uninsured.
