A NANNY has been banned from driving for 14 months after being caught at the wheel while over the limit.

Meghan Wooster, aged 19, of Coppice Hill, Chalford, pleaded guilty to drink-driving at Stroud Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

The court heard she had 56 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit being 35 microgrammes.

Magistrates heard that Wooster was driving home from Stroud when she was stopped by police on the A419 London Road at 3am on Sunday, February 23.

The court was told that police had seen her Citroen vehicle ‘weaving’ across the road.

Simon James, defending, said Wooster was ‘remorseful’ and had learnt a ‘hard lesson ‘ Mr James also said his client would lose her job as a nanny for a five-year-old severely disabled child if she was banned from driving.

“Through losing this job she has also lost the income she was saving to go to university in September,” he added.

Wooster was also fined £100 and must pay £85 costs plus a £20 victim surcharge.
