A WOODBRIDGE chef has been told to do unpaid work for drink driving.
Andrew Wishart a student chef who works at the Cherry Tree public house was more than twice over the legal limit when police caught him drink driving in Melton.
The 20-year-old of Short Walk, Butley, pleaded guilty to driving his Metro car with excess alcohol on March 1.
South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court heard he had 89 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 micrograms.
Wishart, who had previous convictions but not for drink driving, said: “I have been trying to keep my head down and get on with work.”
District Judge David Cooper told Wishart to do 60 hours unpaid work for the community. He disqualified him from driving for 18 months but said a rehabilitation course would reduce the ban by a quarter.
