Have your say

A DRINK-DRIVER was caught behind the wheel while more than twice the limit.

Carl Cornish pleaded guilty to committing the crime while driving a Vauxhall van in London Road, North End, Portsmouth, on November 22.

A test showed the 37-year-old’s breath contained 85 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres – more than twice the legal alcohol limit of 35mg.

Cornish, from Sparrow Close, Waterlooville, was fined £200.

He must also pay £15 to a fund for crime victims and £85 in court costs by Portsmouth magistrates.

Cornish was banned from driving for 16 months.

But the ban could be reduced by four months if he pays to complete a government-approved driving course by October next year.
