A CORSA driver caught out while more than three times the drink-drive limit has been banned from the roads for two years.

Ian Wigmore entered a guilty plea to one count of driving while over the alcohol limit when he appeared before magistrates in January.

The court heard from prosecutor Lauren Millichip that the 39-year-old had been caught out on the A40 at Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire after getting behind the wheel of a black Vauxhall Corsa while over the drink-driving limit on October 20.


An evidential breath test revealed that he had 115 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, more than three times the legal limit of 35.

Magistrates in Hereford handed Wigmore, of Burley Grove, Bristol, a 12-month community order and 80 hours of unpaid work, and disqualified from driving for 24 months, with magistrates saying that they had taken his guilty plea to the charge into account when coming to their decision.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £135 and a £114 victim surcharge.
