A 29-year-old man from Lynn who admitted driving while under the influence of two different drugs has been hit with a driving ban for more than two years.

Jamie Simper, of Estuary Close, was found to have cannabis and ketamine in his blood, above the specified limits, when he was stopped by police on All Saints Street, Lynn, on December 31 last year.

Fergus Harold, prosecuting, said Simper had a number of drug-related convictions.

George Sorrell, mitigating, said: “In almost every respect he presents himself as an agreeable man, but he has struggled with drugs throughout his young and adult life.”

Magistrates disqualified him from driving for 27 months, and fined him a total of £315.

He was told to continue with unpaid work and a rehabilitation activity reqiurement.
