A man has been arrested in connection with road traffic offences after video footage was handed over to police.

The footage had been circulating on social media showing a vehicle being driven at high speed between Fraserburgh and Aberdeen. The vehicle was later involved in a single-vehicle road traffic crash.

Following enquiries, a 29-year-old man was arrested and charged. He is subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal.

Constable MacLeod, of the Mintlaw Road Policing Unit, said: “Several members of the public contacted police after seeing this footage online. "Unfortunately, anyone taking risks on the road puts all road users at risk.

"We would like to assure the community that we remain committed to improving road safety and influencing driver behaviour, safety on our roads is paramount and we will do all we can to achieve that."
