A man has been banned from driving at Derry Magistrate's Court.

Lukasz Jakima, 34, of Deramore Drive, admitted a charge of driving with excess alcohol on January 11.

An evidential breath test revealed a reading of 44mgs some nine mgs over the limit.

Defence solicitor Paddy MacDermott said his client had been drinking the night before and had done a day's work but had not taken any alcohol during the day and believed he was okay.

The defendant was disqualified for 12 months and fined £100.
