Drink-driving barmaid banned

Have your say

A BARMAID found to be over the drink-drive limit has been banned from getting behind the wheel for 20 months.

Stevie Latter (37), of The Gables, Bourne, caught the attention of police on her way home from Morton on the A15 on December 2 because she was travelling “at speed”.

Last Thursday, Spalding Magistrates’ Court was told she had 88 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Defending, Anita Toal said Latter “did not give any thought” to accepting two glasses of wine after work.

As well as issuing the disqualification, magistrates gave her a £120 fine and ordered her to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
