A DRINK-DRIVER has been ordered to do unpaid work.

Mark Davies, 31, of Merlin Close, Waterlooville, admitted driving a Ford Focus in London Road, Waterlooville, while over the legal alcohol limit on Christmas Eve.

A test revealed his breath contained 92 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes. He was told to 60 hours of unpaid work and banned from driving for a year by Portsmouth magistrates.
