Former staff nurse twice over the limit

A former staff nurse who was caught twice over the drink drive limit has been banned from driving.

Elaine Bamford, 55, was seen swerving between lanes in her Toyota Yaris on Godley Road in Northowram by police officers just after 9pm on Aughust 26.
She recorded 77 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.
She told officers she had become depressed after splitting from her partner and had been drinking earlier.
Bamford, of Farm Lane in Southowram, was banned for 20 months and ordered to pay £210 in costs and fines.
