A WOMAN who had drunk more than double the legal alcohol limit has been banned from the roads for drink driving.

Holly Speakman, aged 37, of Aspen Close, Westhoughton, was caught driving a BMW 1 series on Lower Leigh Road, Westhoughton on June 13.

She initially denied committing the offence but then changed her plea to guilty.

Bolton magistrates gave her a 17 month driving ban and she must pay £386 in fines and costs.
