MAGISTRATES have fined a woman for driving while more than twice the legal alcohol limit.

Shelley Baxter was caught after driving a Ford Fiesta in Tempest Road, Waterlooville, on February 21.

A test revealed the 42-year-old’s breath contained 89 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Baxter, from Kassel Close, Waterlooville, pleaded guilty to drink-driving when she appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

She was fined £250, and told to pay £85 costs and £15 into a fund for victims of crime.

She was also banned from driving for two years. But the ban could be reduced by six months if Baxter pays to complete a government-approved driving course by April next year.
