Mariusz Kluj knocked down the cyclist at the Six Roads Roundabout.

A repeat drink driver has been banned from the roads after he knocked down a cyclist on her way to work.

Mariusz Kluj, 38, appeared in the dock charged with being more than two times the drink-drive limit when he hit the cyclist in Aberdeen on August 19 this year.

Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard how Kluj got behind the wheel of his van in the early hours of the morning after drinking the previous evening.

The female cyclist had to be taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with a suspected broken arm after the incident, at Six Roads Roundabout in Aberdeen.

Kluj admitted a charge of driving while over the legal alcohol limit.

It is his second drink driving conviction.

Kluj, of Abbotsford Lane, Aberdeen, was given a two-year community payback order with a supervision requirement and 130 hours of unpaid work.

He was also disqualified from driving for three years and ordered to resit his driving test.
