DRINK-DRIVER Steven Parker has been fined and banned from the roads.

The 41-year-old was stopped by the police in Craneswater Avenue, Southsea, on October 9.

A breathalyser test revealed he had 88 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – meaning he was more than twice the legal limit of 35 microgrammes.

Parker, of Craneswater Avenue, pleaded guilty to drink-driving when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

He was fined £350 and told to pay £100 in costs.

He was banned from driving for 20 months.
