MOTORIST Katherine Aiken was caught driving while more than twice the legal alcohol limit.

The 50-year-old, of Poinsettia Close, Fareham, admitted driving a Peugeot 206 in Botley Road, Park Gate, after drinking too much on April 4.

A test revealed her blood contained 207 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres. The legal limit is 80mg.

Aiken was fined £450 and told to pay £15 into a fund for crime victims and £85 costs by Fareham magistrates.

She was also banned from driving for two years.

The ban could be reduced by six months if she completes a government-approved driving course by November 20, 2012.
