A CARDIGAN motorist has lost his licence for 15 months after admitting drink-driving.

Michael Colin Morgan, of Maes yr Haf, was stopped in the road on October 19 and had 55 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

The 21-year-old admitted the offence when he appeared before magistrates at Aberystwyth Justice Centre. As well as the 15-month ban, he was also fined £200 with £85 costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
