More news, no ads


A Spalding man who was seen to reverse into a car park bollard has been banned from driving after he admitted driving with excess alcohol.

Adrian-Marius Surdu (21), of St Johns Road, also admitted driving unaccompanied without a full driving licence and without insurance.

Prosecuting at Boston Magistrates Court on Wednesday, Marie Stace said a police officer saw Surdu reverse a Honda Civic into a car park bollard in Westlode Street at 10.06pm on April 17.

He was arrested following a positive breath test with a reading of 92 microgrammes of alcohol in his breath, the legal limit being 35.

The magistrates also heard that he only had a provisional driving licence and was unaccompanied in the vehicle, which also cancelled out any insurance on the car.

Surdu, who was unrepresented in court, said he was 'really sorry' and that it had been 'a stupid thing to do to get behind a wheel while I was drunk'.

Surdu was banned from driving for two years but was offered the drink drivers rehabilitation course, which will reduce the period of the ban by 24 weeks.

He was also fined a total of £800 and ordered to pay a total of £165 in court costs and charges.
