Gwyn Jones, aged 55, was caught in a Ford Ranger pick-up truck on the B4392 between Ardleen and Guilsfield, near Welshpool, on December 20.

A breath test showed he had 108 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - more than three times the legal limit of 35mcg.

Jones, of Pool Quay, Welshpool, pleaded guilty at Welshpool Magistrates Court to driving a motor vehicle when above the alcohol limit.

As well as the road ban, magistrates ordered Jones to do 100 hours of unpaid work, a six-month alcohol treatment programme and 25 rehabilitation activity days. He was also ordered to pay £199 in court costs.
