A man was found drunk in charge of a car thought to be blocking a Lynn road.

Zanas Levcenkas, 32, of Wisbech Road, South Lynn, pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared before magistrates on Monday.

The court heard police had been patrolling in the Wootton Road area during the early hours of March 14 when they saw a vehicle, which was parked facing oncoming traffic and feared to be causing an obstruction.

Levcenkas, who was in the driving seat, was noticed to have alcohol on his breath when officers approached.

After failing a roadside breath test, further samples showed he had 78 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

The bench was told Levcenkas had been living in Britain for seven years and worked as a forklift driver. Jakki Upton, mitigating, said the incident would not affect his job.

Levcenkas was given 10 penalty points and a £200 fine. He was also ordered to pay £85 costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
