A woman has been banned from driving for 20 months after pleading guilty to drink-driving.
Laura Marie Fee, 23, of Eskdale Crescent, Workington, admitted the offence when she appeared at West Cumbria Magistrates’ Court.
She was told to pay a £200 fine, £85 costs and a £15 surcharge.
Fee had been seen by a police officer driving an Audi A4 along Newlands Lane at around 1am on March 19.
The car stopped and Fee got out and ran into a property, leaving the engine running and key in the ignition.
When approached by the officer she claimed that she was going to walk her dog but later admitted she had been driving.
A breath test showed she had 81 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
The legal limit for driving is 35 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath.
