A CHRISTMAS Eve drink-driver has been banned from the roads.

Freya Elizabeth Brierley Jones admitted the offence when she appeared before magistrates in Worcester.

The court heard Jones had been stopped in Worcester's Deansway on December 24.

An evidential breath test revealed the 22-year-old had 72 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Jones, of Brighton Grove, Hereford, was disqualified from driving for 17 months and fined £120. She must also pay costs of £135 and a £35 victim surcharge.
