A DRINK-driver has been ordered off the road for 12 months after admitting an offence.

Ian Anthony Joyce, aged 38, of Daffodil Road, Farnworth, appeared before Bolton magistrates and admitted driving a Toyota HiAce car on the East Lancashire Road near Swinton on August 5 while over the alcohol limit.

He was fined £180 and ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £85 court costs.

His ban will be reduced by three months if he completes a driving awareness course.
