MOTORIST Lucy Hardwick was caught driving while more than three times the drink-driving limit.

Hardwick pleaded guilty to driving a BMW in Bridge Street, Titchfield, after drinking too much.

A test revealed the 36-year-old’s breath contained 116 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.

The legal limit is 35mcg per 100ml of breath.

Hardwick, from Penhale Gardens, Fareham, was given a community order stating that she must do 100 hours of unpaid work in the next year.

Fareham magistrates banned her from driving for two years.

However the ban could be reduced by six months if Hardwick pays up to £250 to complete a government- approved driving course by October 6 next year.

She must pay £85 in court costs.
