A Worksop man was caught drink driving after popping out to a shop, a court heard.

Phillip Saywell, 29, of Masefield Place, Worksop, pleaded guilty at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 15th January.

Saywell had drank around three cans of Foster’s when he got in a blue Ford KA on 11th November 2014 to drive to a local shop but he was stopped on Abbey Street and failed a breath test.

In mitigation it was said that Saywell had suffered the loss of four family members recently and that he was very remorseful.

Saywell was fined £600, ordered to pay £60 victim surcharge, £85 costs and banned from driving for 36 months.
