AN UNINSURED driver was caught out near Hereford's police station while more than twice the limit.

Allan Ncube entered a guilty plea to one count of using a motor vehicle on a road or public place without insurance and one count of driving while over the alcohol limit when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford in July.

The court heard from prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 28-year-old, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Chris Read, had been caught out in Hereford's Gaol Street after getting behind the wheel of a black Vauxhall Corsa while over the drink-driving limit on June 3.


An evidential breath test revealed that he had 79 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, more than twice the legal limit of 35.

He was also found to have been driving the car without a valid third party insurance policy in place on that date, the court heard.

Ncube, of Rowden, Bromyard, was fined a total of £446 and disqualified from driving for 18 months. He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £100 and a £184 victim surcharge.
