An elderly drink driver was caught after he was spotted driving too "carefully" in a Northumberland town.

Police followed Andrew Fenny, 70, when they saw him doing 20mph in a 30mph zone in Bedlington one evening in February this year.

The pensioner then parked-up near his home in Rowan Close but was stopped by the officers and breathalysed, a court heard.

Fenny was arrested after he failed the test and later gave a reading of 45 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

And he has now been banned from the roads for 12 months after he pleaded guilty to one count of driving with excess alcohol at South East Northumberland Magistrates' Court.

Fenny's solicitor, Steve Chambers, said he first came to the attention of the officers for driving too "carefully" on February 24.
