A teenager was nearly three times over the drink-drive limit when he crashed his 125cc motorbike on Christmas Eve.

The 17-year-old from Fairlight pleaded guilty at Hastings Magistrates’ Court to driving with excess alcohol and driving other than in accordance with a licence.

He was riding a Honda CBF125 when he crashed it in London Road, St Leonards, at about 10.40pm on December 24.

He was uninjured and taken into custody at Hastings.

In court on January 4 he was disqualified from driving for 18 months, offered a drink-driver rehabilitation course and ordered to pay £50 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
