A MOTORIST caught driving while almost three times the legal alcohol limit has been banned from the roads.

Richard Sparrowhawk pleaded guilty to driving a Ford Mondeo in Anglesea Road, Portsmouth, after drinking too much on May 6.

A test revealed his breath contained 103 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres.

The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Sparrowhawk, of Middlemore Road, Frimley, Surrey, was banned from driving for two years by Portsmouth magistrates.

The 41-year-old was given a community order stating that he must take part in a Drink-Impaired Drivers Course for 14 sessions in the next year.

And Sparrowhawk must also attend appointments under supervision when requested for the next 12 months.

Magistrates made no order for costs.
