A Gidea Park woman was handed a driving ban and a £145 bill after pleading guilty to drink-driving.

Lisa Tidiman, of Belgrave Avenue, was stopped on the A12 at its junction with Tangent Link, Harold Hill, on March 15.

The 46-year-old was breathalysed and found to be at nearly three times the legal drink-drive limit, which is 35 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath. Tidiman had 102 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

She must now carry out 100 hours’ unpaid work within the next 12 months, as well as paying £85 court costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

Tidiman has also been banned from driving for 23 months – but she can reduce the disqualification if she completes a government-approved course.
