A DRIVER was caught with cocaine and cannabis in his system in a Herefordshire town, a court has heard.

Bradley Thomas Kirby admitted the offence when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford on December 9.

The court heard Kirby had been driving a Citroen Saxo in Leominster's South Street when he was stopped on May 14.


An evidential blood test revealed the 23-year-old had 6.1 microgrammes of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, 19 microgrammes of cocaine and 376 microgrammes of cocaine metabolite benzoylecgonine per litre of blood. The respective legal limits are two, 10 and 50.

Kirby, of Wigmore Street, Leominster, was disqualified from driving for three years and fined £450. He must also pay costs of £135 and a £45 victim surcharge.
