Melton woman, Maud Henry (48), was stopped by police as she drove along Hades Lane, at Wymeswold, in February this year.

A test showed she had 83 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – more than twice the legal limit.

Magistrates at Loughborough disqualifed her for 20 months, fined her £126 and made orders to pay a further £85 in costs and £34 towards funding victim service.

Dharmash Borsana, of Queniborough, was banned for a year after being caught drink-driving in March this year.

The 35-year-old, of Alfred Belshaw Road, was fined £441 when he appeared at Loughborough Magistrates Court.

JPs were told that a test showed 52 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit is 35.

Borsana was also ordered to pay £85 in court costs and £44 to victim services.

Syston man, Jordan Keay, was more than three times the drink drive limit when he was stopped by officers at Groby in March this year.

A test showed 131 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, magistrates were told at the Loughborough court.

A community order was issued by the JPs which now requires Keay to undergo a treatment programme for alcohol dependency for a period of six months.

The 23-year-old was also fined £330 when he appeared at the court hearing and ordered to pay £85 in court costs and £95 to help fund victim services.
