A 19-YEAR-old woman has admitted drink driving.

Rosie Long pleaded guilty to the charge when she appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court on May 9.

Nichola Ritchie, prosecuting, said Long was spotted driving her Yamaha on the Malvern Road at 3.10pm on April 21, and officers were concerned by her speed.

Miss Richie said she was pulled over after she swerved across the white line in the middle of the road.

Miss Ritchie said: "She smelt strongly of alcohol.

"She said: 'I know I'm going to be over the limit - I have been testing cocktails'."

After failing a roadside breathalyser test, she was taken to Worcester Police Station, where she provided a sample of 77mcg in 100ml of breath - above the legal limit of 35mcg.

Long, representing herself, provided a statement to magistrates to read as her defence.

Fiona James, chairman of the magistrates bench, said: "We can see you are very sorry about what happened."

Magistrates gave Long, a 17 month disqualification, but offered her the drink drive awareness course which if successfully completed would reduce her ban period.

Long was fined £184, and ordered to pay costs of £135 and a victim surcharge of £30 - a total of £349.
