A Falfield woman has been banned from the road after being found nearly twice the legal limit while driving near Stroud.

Shelley Bailey, 51, of Eastwood Park, was found asleep at the wheel in her parked car in Bath Road on December 9 last year.

She had 68 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Bailey was given a conditional discharge after pleading guilty at Cheltenham magistrates' court on January 3.

She was disqualified from driving for 18 months and ordered to pay total costs of £61.
