Have your say

A MOTORIST who committed a string of driving offences has been ordered to do unpaid work.

James McCall, from Sydenham Court, Fratton, Portsmouth, admitted driving a Vauxhall Corsa in St Paul’s Square, Southsea, with no insurance after drinking too much.

A test revealed McCall’s breath contained 116 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres – more than three times the legal limit of 35mg.

He was banned from driving for two years and told to do 80 hours of unpaid work in the next year by Portsmouth magistrates.

McCall was also fined £100 and ordered to pay £80 costs and £15 to a fund for crime victims.

The 26-year-old pleaded guilty to driving the car without a valid licence.

But no separate penalty was imposed.
