Have your say

A 72-YEAR-OLD drink-driver who was nearly three times the limit has been banned from driving and told to pay £495.

Michael Bone was caught by the police as he drove his Mazda MX5 in Scratchface Lane, Havant, where he lives.

A breathalyser test showed he had 104 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Bone pleaded guilty to drink-driving when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court, following the offence on January 30.

He was given two weeks to pay a £400 fine and ordered to pay £95 in costs. The pensioner was also disqualified from driving for two years.
