David Eley, 57, of Bedford Street, Millom, drove his silver Vauxhall Zafira from Surrey Street to Bedford Street in Millom – a distance of 0.3 miles – just after midnight on April 6.

Eley was travelling to the Peel Hotel, which he runs.

He was spotted reversing by police officers, and was found to have 91 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Eley pleaded guilty to drink-driving at Furness Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Jane Tunn, in mitigation, said: “(Eley) made a foolish decision to get into the car.”

District judge David Purcell banned Eley from the roads for 24 months, and ordered him to pay £85 court costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

Two charges of failing to surrender to police and failing to answer to court on April 29 were dismissed as Eley was unable to attend court due to medical issues.
