He had 92 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath and pleaded guilty at Southampton Magistrates’ Court to drink-driving.

He was disqualified from driving for two years and made the subject of a 12 month community order, including 80 hours of unpaid work.

Bulpitt, of Peartree Road, Southampton, was also ordered to pay court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £90.
