A woman was caught drink-driving after leaving a Lynn pub, having gone out to pick up her husband, magistrates heard.

June Anderson, 44, of Basil Drive, Downham, pleaded guilty to the charge during a court hearing today.

Fergus Harold, prosecuting, told the bench police were alerted after Anderson left the Lattice House pub in Lynn and got into a car at around 9pm on March 23.

She then failed a roadside breath test. Later samples showed she had 65 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Anderson, who represented herself in court, said: “I wish I had never gone out that night. I should never have gone out. I should never have drunk.”

Anderson was fined £300 and banned from driving for 18 months.

She was also told to pay £85 costs plus a £30 victim surcharge.
