Kristopher Henderson, 30, formerly of the Gibraltar Barracks in Hampshire, now of the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, is charged with driving a Seat at Marston with 174 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millitres of blood.

The legal limit is 80mg.

Henderson is accused of committing the drink-drive offence on September 20, on Cliff Lane at its junction with Green Lane in Marston.

To allow the defendant, who is currently on military operations, to attend, the case has been adjourned to March 14 at Grantham Magistrates’ Court.
