Police officers found his Seat Leon on its roof in a field off Old Mill Lane, in Mansfield Woodhouse, in the early hours of November 27, last year.

Mary Dixon, mitigating, said Taylor worked as a railway track man and the loss of his licence might cost him his job.

He was banned for 18 months, fined £300 and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £30.
