An Isle of Wight drink driver who was banned from the roads in 2019 for 'one of the highest readings' magistrates had seen, has been back in court — this time for being more than three times the limit.

Appearing before magistrates on Friday, May 17, Leah Franklin, of St Martin's Road, Wroxall, admitted drink driving.

Liz Miller, prosecuting, said at around 8.45pm on May 1, Franklin was spotted by police on patrol.

Officers saw a BMW, with Franklin at the wheel, pull out of a junction onto Dover Street, Ryde 'erratically'.

The car was stopped on Park Road, Ms Miller said, and Franklin, 29, told police she had been drinking throughout the day.

She was breathalysed and taken to custody and while there, another breath test came back at 108 microgrammes of alcohol, when the legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Jim Osborne, defending, said Franklin had already been banned from driving once before.

On that occasion, in 2019, magistrates said her reading was one of the highest they had ever seen and she was disqualified from driving for two years — a ban that has since expired.

For the latest offence, Mr Osborne asked for a pre-sentence report.

Magistrates agreed, adjourning the case until July 5 for sentencing.

She was given an interim disqualification.
