A BUS driver from York is set to appear before court after being charged with drink driving.

The 45-year-old man failed a roadside breath test after officers pulled over the single-decker bus he was driving on Field Lane in the Badger Hill area of York at about 12.50pm on Tuesday.

Members of the public alerted police after becoming concerned about his driving, a spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said.

The driver of the bus, which is owned by a private hire company, was twice the legal limit of 35 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

There were no passengers on the bus at the time, police said.

The man is due to appear at York Magistrates’ Court on Monday February 4.
