Henley man in court after drink-driving on M40

A HENLEY man who was double the drink-drive limit has been banned from driving for 19 months after being pulled over by police on the M40.

Richard Mark Turner, 57, from Brook End Drive, Henley, pleaded guilty to drink-driving on Friday (15th December) at Leamington Magistrates’ Court.

Warwickshire Police said he was arrested just after 9am on 6th November near junction 3a on the M40 after officers pulled him over to give him advice about his driving.

The officers spoke with Turner and suspected he had drunk alcohol before driving and asked him to provide a roadside breath test, which he failed.

The proportion of alcohol in his breath was found to be 72 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The limit is 35.

Turner was also fined £507 and ordered to pay £135 costs and a £203 victim surcharge. His driving ban could be reduced by 19 weeks if he completes a driver retraining course.
