22-months ban for 70-year-old Carlisle drink-driver

A motorist who admitted drink-driving has been banned from the roads for 22 months.

Tom Gerald Williamson, 70, of Carlisle, refused to give an initial breath test to police and he was taken to the city’s Durranhill Police Station where he was found to have twice the legal limit of alcohol in his breath.

North Cumbria magistrates heard how a member of the public telephoned police on July 22 to report Williamson’s driving.

He was traced through his registration number to his home in Whernside, Morton.

A breath test taken at the police station showed he had 88mcgms of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Magistrates also fined him £200 with prosecution costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £20.

Given the tide of public opinion against on-street parking charges in Cumbria, should county councillors scrap the plan now?

Yes. They should show they hear the voice of the people

No. The council needs the money and has to get it from somewhere

Town centres will suffer but the council will spend £10m on a new HQ. How can that be right?
