Cotswold drink-driver failed to turn up to court

A Cotswold man has been banned from the road after being caught drink-driving.

Peter Shirley, of Fosseway Avenue, Moreton-in-Marsh, has been disqualified from driving for 13 months after pleading guilty to the offence.

He had 45 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath after driving a Ford Fiesta on Fosseway Avenue on July 21. The legal limit is 35.

The 66-year-old also pleaded guilty to failing to surrender to custody at Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court on August 5. 

When he did appear in court on August 9 Shirley was fined £80, ordered to pay a surcharge to fund victim services of £32 and costs of £85 to the Crown Prosecution Service, leaving him with a total bill of £197. 

His driving ban will be reduced by 13 weeks if a drink-drive rehabilitation course is completed.
