A PENNINGTON woman has pleaded not guilty to drink-driving in Dalton.

Elizabeth Simmons denied the offence when she appeared at South Cumbria Magistrates' Court yesterday.

The 42-year-old is accused of driving a Land Rover Discovery in Market Street on October 19 with an alcohol level of 135 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood.

The legal limit is 80 milligrammes.

Simmons claims someone else was driving the car.

The one-day trial will take place on April 21.
