A TEST Valley villager has been banned from the road for drink driving.

Sarah Moulton, 47, was stopped by the police on the A303 near Andover on July 6, a court heard.

Moulton, of Church Lane, Houghton, near Stockbridge, was tested and returned an alcohol reading of 90mg/l when the legal limit is 35, making her more than double the legal limit. She admitted the charge.

Magistrates in Basingstoke on Tuesday July 26 imposed a 23-month disqualification with a £200 fine, £85 costs and an £80 victim surcharge.

The ban will be cut by 23 weeks if she passes a driving course by November 16 2023.
