A Letchworth motorist who drove through the town while more than three times over the alcohol limit has been banned from the road.
Charlie Horniblow, of Western Way, had 110 microgrammes of alcohol in each 100 millilitres of breath when he was caught driving his Audi A3 in his home street on Saturday last week.
The 27-year-old pleaded guilty to drunk driving when he appeared before Hatfield magistrates on Tuesday.
Chairman of the bench David Owen banned Horniblow from holding a driving licence for 26 months – obligatory for the offence – and also ordered him to pay a £667 fine, £85 in costs and a £66 surcharge.
The 26-month driving ban will be reduced by 26 weeks if Hornbilow completes a drink-drive rehabilitation course by September 27 next year.
