A SKODA driver has been banned from the roads for 18 months after he was twice caught drug driving.

Police who stopped the vehicle on Bury Road, Bolton, on April 27, found that Benjamin Bebro, aged 32, of Russell Court, Little Hulton, was driving after taking cocaine.

Manchester magistrates heard that Bebro had also been caught driving the car in Kersal Avenue, Little Hulton, after using cocaine on February 8.

He pleaded guilty to the drug driving offences and was fined £180 plus £117 in costs in addition to the driving ban.
