A DEFECTIVE fog lamp led to a 12-months driving ban for a 19-year-old apprentice electrician after he was stopped in St Neots High Street.

The police officer smelled liquor on the breath of Christopher Andrew Moffat, when he stopped him in the early hours of the morning. Moffat was later found to have 42 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, compared with a legal limit of 35. He pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol, was banned for a year, fined £100 and ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £50 court costs.

His solicitor, Nend Spasojevic, said the ban would prevent his using his own van to get from job to job after he qualified in the summer.
