First published in News

A SELBY drink-driver was caught because CCTV operators tipped off police, York magistrates heard.

Michael Alan Carter was nearly twice the drink-drive limit when he pulled into a car park off Finkle Street, Selby, said Sandra White, prosecuting.

Magistrates banned him from driving for 18 months and ordered him to pay £215 including a £110 fine, a £20 victim surcharge, and £85 prosecution costs.

Offshore rigger Carter, 29, of Newland, Selby, pleaded guilty to drink-driving.

Mrs White said Carter drove on to Finkle Street late on December 14, parked and went into a pub, watched by CCTV operators. He returned a short time later and drove off.

Concerned he had been drinking, CCTV operators told two on-duty police officers.

Carter had 67 millilitres of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 millilitres.
