A drink-driver almost twice the limit told Burnley magistrates he had been stupid.

The court was told how Kyle Mossop (21) was stopped by police at about 3.30am, when they saw a car in front of them drifting and weaving in the road.

He handed officers the keys to his car and at the police station co-operated with all requests.

Mossop, of Hamilton Road, Barrowford, admitted driving with excess alcohol on Church Street, Burnley, on Saturday, May 4th. He has a record, including for being drunk and disorderly and possession of drugs, but nothing similar.

The defendant was told to pay £470 in fines, costs and a victim surcharge and he was banned for 17 months.
