A Lynn man is paying the price after getting behind the wheel after drinking at a party.

Luke Walker, 24, of Edma Street, was stopped by police after driving through a red light on January 17.

Prosecutor Mrs Delia Matthews told West Norfolk Magistrates earlier today (Thursday, February 4) that Walker failed a road side breath test. He gave a reading for 57 micrograms in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 micrograms.

Walker admitted drink-driving and breaching an earlier conditional discharge.

In mitigation, Charlotte Winchester told the hearing that Walker had earlier been drinking at a party but stopped and later thought he would ok to drive.

She told the court that Walker was sorry for the offence and that he had been working as a window fitter.

Walker has been disqualified for 12 months. He was also fined £335 and ordered to pay £118 costs
