A MAN has been banned after being caught drink driving on a number of roads in Bradford.

Lee Tempest, 48, of Spinners Avenue, Scholes, Cleckheaton, appeared in court on one charge of driving a motor vehicle when alcohol level above the limit.

He was caught driving a Volkswagen Transporter on Silver Birch Avenue, Canal Road and Manchester Road in Bradford after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in his breath, namely 100 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, exceeded the prescribed limit. The offence took place on December 19, 2021, and was contrary to section 5(1)(a) of the Road Traffic Act 1988.

Tempest was disqualified from obtaining, or holding, a driving licence for 24 months. The court said this disqualification will be reduced if he has completed a course approved by the Secretary of State by October 2023.

He was also given a community order and must carry out 100 hours unpaid work in the community over the next 12 months.

Tempest was also ordered to pay a £95 victim surcharge and to pay £85 costs.

Tempest pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced at Bradford & Keighley Magistrates’ Court on May 25, 2022.
