Last updated at 09:49, Wednesday, 30 October 2013
A RECKLESS Barrow motorist who ignored a police roadblock was twice over the drink-drive limit – a court heard.
Zak Steel, 22, from Yarlside Road, pleaded guilty to drink-driving at Furness Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, said on October 12 at 8.45pm Steel drove around Sergeant Andrew Travis’s vehicle on Leece Lane, which he was using as a roadblock.
Another officer stopped Steel, smelled alcohol and asked him to perform a breath test. Steel then admitted he would fail and was arrested.
District judge Mr Gerald Chalk disqualified Steel from driving for 20 months and ordered him to pay a £125 fine, £85 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

Have your say
NoName - A mistake is when you leave your purse on the bus. It is not when you get behind the wheel of a car when you are drunk. Driving is a mentality as well as an action and this young man doesn't desrve the privelige of being a road user.
Everyone makes mistakes,,,, im sure he regrets it, without people pointing out hes an 'idiot'
