A DOVER man caught drink-driving and driving with no insurance has been banned from getting behind the wheel for three years.

Brendan Nathan Kent, 31, of Shipmans Way, was sentenced on January 14 at Channel Magistrates' Court.

He pleaded guilty to drink-driving and driving with no insurance when stopped on Maison Dieu Road, Dover, on December 20, 2012.

Kent drove a Ford Fiesta and when stopped gave a breath test of 47 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

He also had no insurance and was driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.

Magistrates disqualified Kent from driving for three years, fined him £110 and ordered him to pay £85 costs and a £22 victim surcharge.
