A DRINK driver who was more than three times over the limit has been banned and given a three-month curfew.

David Wild, of Lilford Street, Leigh, registered a reading of 124 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath when he was breathalysed on St Helens Road on December 9. The legal limit is 35 micrograms.

As well as the curfew, the 52-year-old was disqualified from driving for three years which may be reduced by 36 weeks if he completes a course.

Wild was also ordered to pay a victim services surcharge fee of £85 and court costs of £85.

He was sentenced at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court yesterday, Wednesday.
