Police who stopped a Porsche Boxter after seeing it being driven erratically found the driver was over the alcohol limit.

James Jolly lied to an officer saying he had had nothing to drink, but the officer pointed out he could smell cider on his breath a court was told.

You could have killed someone. It’s up to you never to do this again

Jolly, a 28-year-old sales representative, of Rossall Road, Fleetwood, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol.

He was banned from the road for 12 months, fined £330 with £85 costs and ordered to pay a £150 court charge plus £33 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Presiding magistrate, Brenda Wildish, warned him: “You could have killed someone. It’s up to you never to do this again.”

A breath test showed 44 microgrammes of alcohol in Jolly’s body - 35 is the limit.
