    Singer Paolo Nutini has been found not guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol in his home town of Paisley.

    The 30-year-old had denied driving while more than twice the legal limit on 21 February.

    The Scottish songwriter had used “the hip flask defence”, which suggested he had drunk alcohol after he had driven.

    A Scottish Police Authority forensic toxicologist had told the trial that “post-incident drinking” could increase alcohol readings.

    Nutini’s debut album, These Streets, was released in 2006 and peaked at number three on the UK Albums Chart, while the follow-up, 2009’s Sunny Side Up, debuted at number one.
