A man from Ashton has been banned from the road for three years for a drink-driving offence.

Michael Alexander, of Katherine Street, had denied the charge when he appeared at Tameside magistrates’ court.

The 29-year-old was accused of driving a Vauxhall Combo along Fleet Street in Ashton on July 31 last year.

The court heard he had 46 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millitres of breath – the legal limit being 35.

Magistrates found him guilty of the offence and fined him £100, plus ordered him to pay a further £100 in costs and an £85 victim surcharge.

The court also found him guilty of not driving with insurance cover.
