A MOTORIST stopped by the police and found to be over the limit in a roadside test told them she had drunk half a pint of cider half an hour before.
She later registered 104 milligrams of alcohol in blood, 24 points over the limit.
Before Truro magistrates, Victoria Brickstock, aged 31, of Kew Pendra, St Buryan, admitted drink-driving at Drift on October 26 and said she had drunk a couple of pints that day. Brickstock, who was convicted of fraud last July, was stopped at 1.30am by police who noticed a smell of alcohol. She was fined £110 with £105 costs and surcharge and banned from driving for a year.
