A DRINK-driver has been fined and banned from the roads.

David Knight was stopped by police as he drove a Citroen Berlingo in Elson Road, Gosport, on July 22.

A test revealed he had 49 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35mg.

Knight, of Hambrook Road, Gosport, was due to appear before magistrates on August 3 but he didn’t show up.

When the 29-year-old was brought before Portsmouth magistrates he pleaded guilty to drink-driving, driving without insurance and failing to appear in court.

Knight was fined £375, with £100 in costs. He was disqualified from driving for a year.
