A man charged after a driver was filmed with a windscreen almost completely obscured by snow has been dealt with by an alternative to court action.

The incident was captured on a dash cam on the B9119 near Garlogie in February.

It showed the vehicle with only a small circle of snow cleared.

Steven Mearns, 36, was reported by police. The Crown Office said a man had been dealt with by an unspecified direct measure, which can include fines and warnings.
