A Sutterton man ‘having incredible difficulties with alcohol’ was more than double the drink-drive limit while driving his BMW.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said police stopped Deepak Samra’s car on Boston’s John Adams Way at 12.40am on February 21.

A reading revealed 85 microgrammes of alcohol in breath – the legal limit is 35mcs.

Samra (27), of One Way Street, admitted driving with excess alcohol and having no MOT when he appeared at Boston Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.

He was convicted of driving with excess alcohol in 2007 and failing to provide a specimen for analysis in 2008.

Samra received an interim driving ban and sentence was adjourned to April 3.

Barrister Rachael Ward told magistrates: “He has incredible difficulties with alcohol and he is currently drinking alcohol every single day.”
