Fears grow over safety of missing Portsmouth man

Have your say

A REPEAT drink-driver has been jailed after the courts finally ran out of patience with him.

Adrian Berry, 36, was almost twice the limit when he was stopped by the police in Copnor Road as he drove his Vauxhall Vectra.

A breathalyser test showed he had 69 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Berry, of Brompton Road, Southsea, was due to appear before magistrates last month but he didn’t show up.

When he was brought before Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court Berry pleaded guilty to drink-driving and failing to attend court.

The court heard he had a number of previous convictions for drink-driving.

Berry also has a history of failing to turn up at court when he is supposed to.

The magistrates jailed him for 90 days for the driving offence and a further two weeks for not attending court.

He was also disqualified from driving for three years.
