MAGISTRATES have banned a man from driving for 12 months after he was caught drink driving.

The court heard how Muhammad Asghar, aged 21, of Windsor Road, Prestwich, was driving a Mercedes on Regent Road, Salford, on June 18 when he committed the offence.

He pleaded guilty to drink driving and, in addition to the ban, was fined £120 plus £119 in costs and charges by Manchester magistrates.
