A MAN has been banned from the roads for three years after he was caught drink-driving at Herefordshire's SAS camp.

Thomas Turner entered a guilty plea to magistrates in Hereford after previously pleading not guilty.

The court heard the 23-year-old had been caught attempting to drive a Vauxhall Corsa at Stirling Lines in Credenhill, Herefordshire, while over the drink-drive limit on April 17.


An evidential breath test revealed he had 83 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Turner, of Harvesters, St Albans, was disqualified from driving for 36 months and fined £322. He must also pay costs of £185 and a £34 victim surcharge.
