A Grantham woman has been disqualified from driving for three years and fined £1,300 for two separate incidents of drink driving.

On November 11 last year Binal Patel, aged 32, of Barrowby Gate was caught driving a Mercedes on Winchester Road with 125 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, more than three times the legal limit.

She was also caught driving the same car on Harlaxton Road on November 29 with 49 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

In addition to the fine and the disqualification which she can reduce through completion of a drink driver’s rehabilitation course, Patel was ordered to pay prosecution costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £120.
