A warehouse administrator who drove in a village high street while over the drink drive limit has been handed a 24-month ban.

Debra-Lyn Brown, 53, was given her driving ban after she pleaded guilty to drink driving in Caister's High Street on June 19.

Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court heard police were called to the High Street at 8pm and a police car blocked Brown's Fiat from leaving a parking space.

A breath test gave a reading of 101 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit being 35 microgrammes.

Brown, who lives in Caister's Clay Road, had no previous convictions and was of previous good character.

It was said that without a car it would be hard for Brown to get to her place of work, where she was a warehouse administrator.

As well as her driving ban, Brown was ordered to carry out 100 hours unpaid work and pay costs of £105 and a victim surcharge of £114.
