Have your say

POLICE have charged a man with stealing a car and crashing it into a brick wall and garden fence.

Robert Lennon is accused of taking the Ford Ka while over the drink-drive limit and refusing to stop when police tried to pull him over.

The 24-year-old denies the offences.

He is accused of crashing the vehicle in Keydell Avenue, Waterlooville, on May 30.

A breathalyser test allegedly showed he had 77 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – more than twice the legal limit of 35 microgrammes.

Lennon, of Philip Road, Waterlooville, pleaded not guilty to taking the car, drink-driving and failing to stop for the police when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

He was remanded in custody until later this month for a trial.
