Drink driver banned

Have your say

A NEWLY qualified driver, who tried to drive home after drinking – without lights on – at 2.50am on May 30 was disqualified for 16 months.

Roxanne Croft, of Harrowby Lane, Harrowby, admitted that she was stupid for trying to drive but she had no money for a taxi.

She said: “I had not had alcohol for three hours and felt I was ok to drive. I only passed my test six weeks ago and was extremely naive.” Croft, 23, was fined £200 plus costs.
