A woman has been banned from driving after being caught almost four times over the drink-drive limit.

She was pulled over by police on June 8 this year at Deadman Tree Hill, Barcombe.

When she was breathalysed she had 142 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of his breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Mitchell, of West Street, Burgess Hill, was also ordered to pay £60 court costs and an £85 victim surcharge.

A total of 116 people have been charged with drink drive offences during Operation Dragonfly, Sussex Police's crackdown on drink and drug driving in June.
