Six year ban for Cumbrian woman almost five times drink-drive limit

A 36-year-old woman has been banned from driving for six years after she was nearly five times the drink-drive limit.

Deborah Rawle, of Low Road Close, Cockermouth, was also given a 16-week jail sentence, suspended for two years, because of the severity of the offence.

Magistrates in west Cumbria told her the alcohol level was “extremely high” and only a custodial sentence could be justified.

Rawle was found to have 161mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath – nearly five times the 35mg limit. She had been driving a Hyundai Getz on Low Road on June 19.

She admitted drink-driving and was ordered to have alcohol dependency treatment as part of her two-year supervision order.

Rawle was also ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £80 victim surcharge.

Do we need a tourism authority to promote Cumbria?

Yes. Without proactive promotion we lose business

No. Tourist businesses should pay for their own marketing

If promotion is left to the tourism industry the Lakes will win and north Cumbria will lose
