A GLANAMAN man has appeared before magistrates charged with drug-driving.

Steffan Sparkes, of Brynlloi Road, was caught behind the wheel of a Renault Clio on the A474 Cwmaman Road, with cannabis in his system.

The 20-year-old pleaded guilty to drug driving on June 19 this year when appearing at Llanelli Magistrates' Court on November 12.

He had 3.6 micrograms of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol per litre of his blood when the legal limit is 2 micrograms. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is found in the blood of people who have had cannabis.

He was given an 18-month ban, fined £290 and ordered to pay £85 in prosecution costs and a £34 victim surcharge.
