A Welwyn Garden City woman has been banned from getting behind the wheel for four years after drink driving in Hatfield.

Lisa Daltry admitted drink driving in Buttercup Close when she appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on August 21.

The 35-year-old had 109 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath between July 21-22.

The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Daltry also admitted using a passenger carrying vehicle, namely a Ford Mondeo, without insurance.

The resident of Peartree Lane was given a community order.

She is under curfew for one month and must be at home between 8pm and 6am.

She must also participate in any activity as directed by a responsible officer for up to 25 days.

Daltry was ordered to pay victim services £85 as well as £85 court costs.

Magistrates banned her from driving for 49 months.

This will be reduced by 49 weeks if she takes part in a course approved of by the Secretary of State.

There was no separate penalty for the second offence.
