A Malmesbury woman has been banned from the road after being caught drink-driving.

Rachel Osman, of Moor Lane, Charlton, has been disqualified from driving for 12 months after pleading guilty to the offence. 

She had 47 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath after driving a Peugeot 207 on Malmesbury's Gloucester Road on September 17. The legal limit is 35.

The 28-year-old was also fined £96 and ordered to pay a surcharge to fund victim services of £34 and costs of £85 to the Crown Prosecution Service after case was heard at Swindon Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, November 9.

Her driving ban will be reduced by three months if a drink-drive rehabilitation course is completed.
