A woman who was caught driving while twice the legal alcohol limit has been banned from the road.

Her breathalyser test showed 70 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath, exactly twice the legal limit of 35mcg.

Smyth, of Loak Road, Albrighton, Wolverhampton, pleaded guilty to driving while over the legal alcohol limit.

She was banned from the road for 20 months, fined £120, and ordered to pay £135 court costs and a £34 victim surcharge.
