A former bus driver has been handed a 20 month ban and lost his job as a result of attempting to drive whilst over the drink driving limit.
The driver, Sukhdwp Sandhu was arrested in on March 17 2016, on suspicion of drink driving.
At his first appearance at the Magistrates’ Court he pleaded not guilty to drink driving and failing to provide a specimen.
At a later hearing, Sandhu pleaded guilty to attempting to drive whilst under the influence of drink as an alternative to the drink driving offence and the second charge of failing to provide a specimen was dismissed.
As a result of his guilty plea, Sandhu was banned from driving for 20 months.
His now ex employer, Metroline, confirmed that his contract was terminated a week after his initial arrest.
