A BRICKLAYER lost his driving licence for the second time after he admitted risking a late-night journey to see his girlfriend.

Magistrates in Huntingdon heard how David Bingham, 57, had argued with his girlfriend in St Neots Mobile Home Park the previous evening.

Bingham then returned back to his home in Whitehall Walk, St Neots, where he drank 'a few' beers, his solicitor Kevin Warboys told the court.

"It was then that he began to receive a number of messages from his partner where she demanded he go to see her and he did so."

On his arrival, Bingham once again argued with her and drove away as police officers arrived.

He was stopped in Duck Lane where he recorded a breathalyser reading of 96 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - almost three times the limit of 35 micrograms.
