A MAN has been banned from the roads after he was caught drug-driving in Hereford.

Shay Ashley Goble admitted the offence when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford on January 6.

The court heard Goble had been caught driving a Renault Clio on Hereford's Aylestone Hill on August 9.

Blood tests revealed the 22-year-old had 12 microgrammes of cannabis metabolite delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol per litre of blood. The legal limit is two.

Goble was disqualified from driving for 12 months and fined £30. He must also pay costs of £50 and a £34 victim surcharge.
