A MAN has been fined after pleading guilty to drink driving in Worcester.

Steven Gourley, 24, appeared before magistrates on January 16 after he was caught by police driving “poorly” on December 15. On the night, officers noticed Gourly’s Peugeot 307 being driven in Bransford Road.

He failed a roadside breath test, and was recorded as having 60 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath

Emily Clewer, prosecuting, told the court that Gourly, of Boughton Avenue, had a previous driving conviction from June 2018, meaning he faced a three year ban.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and the court also heard how he intends to join the army and that he did not feel he needed to do the drink driving rehabilitation course because of his choice of career.

Chair of the bench Gareth Thomas banned Gourly from driving for 36 months and ordered him to pay a fine of £120, a victim surcharge of £32 and costs of £135.
