Waterlooville drink-driver hit with ban

Have your say

A DRINK-DRIVER who was caught by Ministry of Defence police has been banned from the roads for a year.

David Hurst was pulled over as he drove his Toyota Avensis in Princess Royal Way, by the naval base in Portsmouth.

A breathalyser test revealed he had 96 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

He was more than twice the legal limit of 35 microgrammes.

Hurst, of Freshfield Gardens, Waterlooville, pleaded guilty to drink-driving when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

The 58-year-old could have his ban reduced by three months if he pays £250 to go on a government run drink-driving course.

He was also ordered to pay a £350 fine and £100 in court costs.
