A teenage motorist faces court action after he was caught by police during a weekend crackdown on dangerous driving in East Renfrewshire.

The 18-year-old driver was spotted on the A726 in Newton Mearns in the early hours of Saturday as he allegedly undercut vehicles and travelled too fast for the wet conditions.

A police spokesperson said: "He was stopped and charged and the allegation will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal."
