Three year ban for drink-drive Carlisle woman

A woman who moved her car following a spate of break-ins near her home was almost three times the drink-drive limit when stopped by police.

Janet Frizzell, 46, of Manor Place, Upperby, Carlisle, was banned from driving for more than three years by magistrates in the city after she admitted the offence.

The court heard that it was her second such offence in nine years.

Adrienne Harris, prosecuting, told the court that officers saw her car at around 5.50am on October 6.

They stopped her car and found her unsteady on her feet smelling of alcohol.

A breath test showed she had 92mcgms of alcohol in 100ml of breath – the legal limit is 35mg.

Chris Tom, defending, said that as Frizzell was going to an auction sale later that day and her car was full of items, she decided to move the car 200 yards to Manor Road where she felt it would be safer.
