Have your say

MOTORIST Simon Hore was caught behind the wheel while more than twice the drink-drive limit.

Hore pleaded guilty to driving a silver Ford Focus in Purbrook Way, Havant, after drinking too much on November 27.

A test revealed his breath contained 83 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres – more than twice the legal limit of 35mg.

Hore, of Northern Parade, Hilsea, Portsmouth, was banned from driving for 20 months and told to pay £500 in a fine and costs by Portsmouth magistrates.

The 26-year-old admitted committing the offence while subject to a 12-month conditional discharge.

No separate action was taken for breaching that order.
