A DRINK-DRIVER who was twice the legal limit has been banned from driving.

Angelo Sciberras was stopped as he drove his car in Gunwharf Road, Old Portsmouth.

A breathalyser test revealed he had 72 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – just over twice the legal limit of 35 microgrammes.

Sciberras, 20, of Yorke Street, Southsea, pleaded guilty to drink-driving when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

He was banned from driving for 20 months and fined £200.

The magistrates ordered him to pay £100 in costs.
