A Dersingham cricket club player has been banned from getting behind the wheel after being caught drink-driving.

James Havers, 22, of Onedin Close, Dersingham, was disqualified from driving for 18 months and ordered to pay a £500 fine and £285 court costs after he admitted the offence at Lynn Magistrates’ Court today.

The court heard Havers, an account manager, had gone out drinking in Lynn after a cricket match on August 22. He was pulled over by police at 3.30am the following day after he was spotted driving in Railway Road without his headlights on.

A breath test later revealed 76 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit is 35.
