A DRINK-DRIVER has been banned for 17 months.

Curtis Daly, 33, was caught on the M275 nearly double the legal limit.

Daly, of Rochester Road, Southsea, was stopped driving a BMW 118D on October 14.

A test revealed he had 65 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, more than the 35mg legal limit. Portsmouth magistrates fined him £500.

He must pay a £50 victim surcharge and £85 prosecution costs.
