A WOMAN has been banned after being nearly three times over the drink driving limit.

Hannah Ryan, of Lime Grove, Lowton had 100 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of her breath when she was breathalysed on Warrington Road in Wigan on March 25.

The legal limit is 35 micrograms.

The 25-year-old has been disqualified from driving for two years which may be reduced by 24 weeks if she completes a course.

She has also been ordered to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work, and pay a victim services surcharge fee of £85 and court costs of £85.

Ryan was sentenced at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.
