ATTEMPTING to drive through Spalding while drunk has cost a professional driver a 20-month ban.

Wieslaw Jozef Gruca (46), of Milestone Lane, Pinchbeck, must also pay a £165 fine, £150 costs and a £15 victim surcharge after appearing at Spalding Magistrates’ Court last Thursday.

The matter was orignally due to be heard at a trial but Gruca changed his plea to guilty less than a month before he was due to appear.

The court was told Gruca was found to have 88 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath after being stopped by police in Spalding’s Red Lion Street on July 6.
