A motorist who was stopped by police during an MOT certificate check was caught drink-driving.

Abbi Mann, 33, of Devonshire Close, Chesterfield, admitted exceeding the alcohol drink-drive limit during a Chesterfield magistrates’ court hearing on Friday.

The court heard how Mann had been driving in Brimington in March when she was stopped. She said she had never done anything like it before.

Magistrates gave her a 19 month driving ban and she was ordered to pay £215 in fines, costs and a victim surcharge.
