A woman has been banned from driving for three years after she was caught driving in Chesham while more than four times over the legal limit.

Zoe Hill, aged 22, was severely intoxicated when she was caught driving along Blackwell Hall Lane, in Latimer, in a Suzuki Jimny, on April 26.

When she carried out a breath test, Hill gave a reading of 144 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 micrograms, meaning she was more than four times over the limit.
