She was caught in the town last year

A Corby woman was caught behind the wheel despite being more than three times the legal drink-drive limit.

Kim Smith, 63, has been ordered to carry out unpaid work after she was caught by police in her Mercedes last year.

She was stopped in Sower Leys Road on November 7 and later breathalysed, where she gave a reading of 127mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

Northampton Magistrates' Court.

It's more than three times the legal limit of 35mcg.

Smith, of Cantle Close, admitted drink-driving when she faced magistrates in Northampton.

This month she appeared at the same court for her sentencing hearing, where she was given a community order and told she would have to complete 160 hours of unpaid work.

Smith was also banned from driving for 36 months.

Her disqualification will be reduced by 36 weeks if she completes a drink-drive rehabilitation course.

She will also have to pay costs of £85 and a surcharge to fund victim services of £95.
