DRINK-DRIVER Edward Gordon has been ordered to do unpaid work.

Gordon was stopped by the police as he rode a moped in Ward Road, Eastney, Portsmouth.

He was taken to Portsmouth central police station where a test showed he had 209 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood – more than twice the legal limit of 80mg.

Gordon, of Ernest Road, Southsea, pleaded not guilty to a charge of drink-driving.

He was convicted after a trial at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

The 49-year-old must carry out 100 hours of unpaid work in the next year.

Magistrates banned him from driving for two years.
