A man has admitted drink-driving after a video of him driving dangerously on the A90 into Stonehaven was posted on a social networking site.

Sean Hills was caught on Monday close to his home in the Aberdeenshire town.

The footage, which was posted on Facebook, showed his car veering across the A90 dual carriageway. He then drove into the town, before being stopped by a police patrol.

Hills, 36, will be sentenced next month at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.
