A Welwyn Garden City drink driver has been banned from getting behind the wheel for two years.

Mark Fearon, of Bessemer Road, WGC, admitted the offence when he appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on August 21.

Fearon had been driving a BMW 3301 in Great North Road, Hatfield, on August 11 when he was found to be over the limit.

The 25-year-old had 98 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Magistrates gave Fearon a community order.

He must carry out 50 hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months.

This work will be supervised by a responsible officer.

Fearon was ordered to pay victim services £85 and £85 court costs.

He was banned from driving for 24 months.

If he takes part in a course approved of by the Secretary of State, the ban will be reduced by 24 weeks.
