A DRUG-driver has been banned from the roads for 12 months and hit with a hefty fine.

Dylan Savinelli, of Nantcrymannau, Cardigan, was stopped on the A484 at Llechryd on New Year’s Eve while driving a Peugeot Expert van and tested positive for cocaine.

The 29-year-old admitted the charge when he appeared before magistrates at Aberystwyth Justice Centre, where he was banned from driving for a year and fined £250. Savinelli was also ordered to pay a £30 victim surcharge.
