Disqualified drink-driver who crashed car jailed

A disqualified driver has been jailed for 120 days after taking a car and crashing when over the drink-drive limit.

West Cumbria magistrates told Christopher Weston, 29, of Bolton Street, Workington, that they were jailing him because the incident was so serious and he had a history of similar offences.

Weston was jailed for 120 days after admitting taking a Vauxhall Vectra without the owner’s consent.

He was sentenced to 80 days – to run concurrently – after being found to be more than twice the legal drink-drive limit. He also received 80 days – to run concurrently – for driving while disqualified.

He also admitted driving without insurance. He was disqualified for three years.
