A DRINK-DRIVING case was adjourned at Worcester's magistrates court due to the ‘special reasons’ argument being raised by the defendant's lawyer.

Gary Hobbis was stopped by police in Ombersley Street, Droitwich on September 21 and found to have 100 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of his breath, exceeding the limit of 35mg.

Defending Hobbis, Jason Patel said the case should be adjourned to a later date so that he could put forward the 'special reasons argument' to appeal for the magistrates not to ban his client from driving.

Mr Patel said that Hobbis only drove from his house, down the road, about 10 houses along, to store his van in a secure garage because it contained valuable tools he uses for his trade, which he feared would be stolen.

The 53-year-old, who lives in Bromsgrove Road, Droitwich appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court on Thursday, October 10. He will next appear at the same court on November 8 at 2pm.
