DRINK-driver Lewis Gooding has been banned from the roads.

The 27-year-old pleaded guilty to driving a Peugeot 206 in Linden Lea, Fareham, while over the legal alcohol limit on May 21.

A test revealed Gooding’s breath contained 60 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres. The legal limit is 35mg.

Gooding, from Whitehaven, Portchester, was fined £400 by Fareham magistrates.

He was ordered to pay £85 in court costs and £15 into a fund for victims of crime.

Gooding was banned from driving for 16 months.

The ban could be reduced by four months on the condition that Gooding pays and successfully completes a government-approved driving course by April 2012.
