A DRINK-DRIVER was caught by police after he stopped at a green light in Hereford, a court heard.

Iulian Bejenaru, 29, of Catherine Street, Hereford, also pleaded guilty to having no insurance when he appeared before magistrates on January 8.

Lesley Ashton, prosecuting, said police were patrolling in an unmarked car on Ross Road, Hereford, when they spotted Bejenaru's Honda Accord swerving in the carriageway.

The officers decided to follow Bejenaru, who then stopped at a green light before turning into Holme Lacy Road without indicating.

Police decided to stop Bejenaru, who continued to drive at erratic speeds before pulling over in Hinton Road.

He was arrested after failing a roadside breath test. A further test showed he had 75 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

Edmund Middleton, for Bejenaru, said the factory operative had not had any previous interactions with the police since moving to the UK in 2018.

Bejenaru was disqualified from driving for 20 months and fined a total of £600 for driving with excess alcohol and with no insurance. He must also pay costs of £135 and a £32 victim surcharge.
