A drink-driver who was nearly three times over the limit has been banned from the road for two years.

The legal limit is 35 mcgs.

Pleading guilty at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court, the 53-year-old, of Egmanton Road, Meden Vale, was given a community order with two months’ curfew with an electronic tag and made to pay £170 in costs.
