Points on licence

First published in Headlines

A MAN who was reported by a worried member of the public who spotted him getting in and out of a car while over the limit has had ten points added to his driving licence.

James Edward Neve, 28, of The Headlands in Downton, escaped a ban because he had not driven the vehicle, although the engine was running when the police went to investigate.

Police were called to Kipling Road in Eastleigh on February 3 after it was reported that Neve was getting in and out of his Ford Mondeo.

Officers breathalysed him and discovered he was twice the legal limit.

Magistrates in Southampton fined him £90 and ordered him to pay a victim surcharge of £20 and costs of £85.
