Drink-drive from court.

A PENSIONER was caught drink-driving after returning home from giving evidence in a court case.

Brian Janes, 64, of Fernside Avenue, Almondbury, pleaded guilty to driving whilst over the prescribed limit at Kirklees Magistrates' Court yesterday.

Janes' Ford Focus was stopped by police near to his home on October 25 at 7.30pm. They spoke to him and could smell alcohol on his breath.

At Huddersfield Police Station he was found to have 62 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Janes told District Judge Marie Mallon he had been to Manchester.

He said: "I had been to give my evidence on a case involving fraud. It's totally out of character."

He was banned from driving for 12 months and told to pay a PS110 fine, PS85 costs and PS20 victim surcharge.
