A man who drove while almost three times over the legal drink-drive limit has been stripped of his licence for 23 months.

Thomas D'Arcy, 34, of Town Lane, Wooburn Green, was stopped by police at Bourne End on May 7, 2024.

A breath test was carried out, and it was found that D'Arcy had been drink-driving.

The proportion of alcohol in his breath was 95µg in 100 millilitres - almost three times over the legal limit.

The defendant appeared before High Wycombe Magistrates' Court on June 4.

There, he pleaded guilty to a charge of drink-driving.

He was banned from driving for 23 months, and was also ordered to pay a £384 fine, £85 in court costs, and a £154 victim surcharge.

Anybody caught drink-driving could be punished severely.

Magistrates are able to fine offenders, strip them of their licence, or even jail them in the most extreme cases.
