MOTORIST Anthony Kelleher was caught driving while more than twice the legal alcohol limit.

Kelleher pleaded guilty to driving a Transit van in Southampton Road, Portsmouth, after drinking too much on March 17.

A test later revealed his breath contained 73 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres.

The reading was more than twice the legal limit of 35mcg.

Kelleher was banned from driving for 18 months.

Portsmouth magistrates ordered the 42-year-old, from Bromyard Crescent, Paulsgrove, Portsmouth, to pay £600 in a fine and court costs.
