A Hampshire woman has been banned from driving for two years, for riding an e-scooter through Newport, after drinking alcohol. 

Police stopped Kyah Jordan, of Herbert Road in New Milton, at around 10.30pm on Saturday December 12.

She first appeared before Isle of Wight magistrates in December, charged with drink driving.

The 20-year-old was sentenced this week.

Her e-scooter, hired through a scheme that launched on the Island late last year, was spotted on Pyle Street.

Magistrates were told it 'narrowly' missed an unmarked police car.

Ms Jordan was banned from driving for two years, which could be reduced if she attends a course.

She was given a community order to complete 40 hours of community service in the next 12 months and must pay costs and a victim surcharge.

In the first week of the e-scooter loan scheme, it was claimed more than 700 journeys had been made on the Isle of Wight.
