A woman convicted of her second drink-drive within ten years was banned from driving for 36 months by Spalding magistrates.

Dale Tamutiene (49), of Patriot Close, Spalding, had 47 microgrammes of alcohol in breath when police stopped her Renault Clio on November 9 – the legal limit is 35mcs.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said she had a previous conviction in 2009.

Tamutiene, who pleaded guilty, can cut nine months off the ban if she completes a rehabilitation course. She was fined £160 and must pay £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

Solicitor Anita Toal, mitigating, said Tamutiene, had a small amount of Champagne and was asked to run an errand for a friend – she hadn’t realised she was over the limit.
