A HORDLE motorist caught at the wheel while more than four times the alcohol limit was handed a suspended prison sentence by magistrates.

Sam White (28), of Elizabeth Crescent, pleaded guilty to drink-driving at New Milton railway station in Station Approach on 20th September 2021.

The high reading prompted the Poole Bench to hand out the 16-week jail term, which was suspended for 12 months.

A charge of driving while unfit through drink, relating to the same date and location, was withdrawn.
