Woman admits drink-driving home after medical scare

Have your say

DRIVING home after a night out landed a woman with a 12 month driving ban.

Cindy Carrier, 23, of Gorse Road, Grantham, admitted being over the drink drive limit on April 5. Police attended Carrier’s home after receiving a report of her driving. She recorded a breath test of 42mcg, the legal limit is 35mcg.

Chris Pye-Smith, defending, said: “This offence was brought about by the situation where she found a lump and was referred for an MRI scan. She consumed more alcohol than she would have normally done and completed her journey.”

Carrier, who lost her job because of the ban, was fined £110 plus £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
