A DRINK-DRIVER has been handed a three-year roads ban after he was caught in Herefordshire.

Oliver Robey entered a guilty plea when he appeared before a district judge in Kidderminster.

The court heard the 32-year-old had been caught behind the wheel of a Kia in Tremorithic Road, Bacton, while over the drink-drive limit on December 8.

An evidential breath test revealed he had 49 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Robey, of Bacton, Herefordshire, was disqualified from driving for three years. No costs or surcharge were imposed due to time spent in custody.
