A drink-driver has been banned from getting behind the wheel and slapped with a curfew after he drove while three times over the legal alcohol limit.

Lee Sheldrick, 44, of Udale Court, Workington, appeared before magistrates in the town on Friday and admitted drink driving.

He also pleaded guilty to having no car insurance or a driving licence.

The court heard Sheldrick had 111 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – more than three times the legal limit – when he drove a Ford Focus on Branthwaite Road in Workington on July 20.

Sheldrick was banned from driving for 28 months and slapped with a three-month curfew.

He was also ordered to pay a £90 victim surcharge and £85 costs.

There was no separate penalty for the lack of insurance or licence.
