A MOTORIST has been banned for 12 months for drug-driving.

Emyr Wyn Rees, of Rhydyfro, Llangadog, admitted the offence when he appeared before Llanelli Magistrates’ court on Tuesday.

The court heard the 39-year-old had been driving a black Aprillia motorcycle on the A476 in Upper Tumble on October 22 last year, when there was Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (cannabis) in his system.

As well as the ban, he was handed a £292 fine and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £32 victim surcharge.
