Driving ban for Chelmsley Wood woman.

A BMW worker from Solihull is likely to lose her job after being banned from driving for three years, a court has heard.

A BMW worker from Solihull is likely to lose her job after being banned from driving for three years, a court has heard.

Louise Bradley, of Leahill Croft in Chelmsley Wood, appeared at Solihull Magistrates Court on Monday after pleading guilty to drink driving.

Bradley, 31, was pulled over on February 18, after officers said she was driving erratically along Dunton Road. A breath test revealed she had 56 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

In her defence, magistrates were told Bradley had two glasses of wine and thought she would still be inside the limit.

The defendant’s solicitor said Bradley, who works shifts at BMW Hams Hall, is likely to lose her job if she is disqualified from driving because she would be unable to travel to work.

Nevertheless, she was banned for three years, fined £300 and ordered to pay £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
