It has been reported that England Rugby’s fly half, Danny Cipriani has lost his trial and been convicted of drink driving.

Cipriani was banned from driving for 18 months and order to pay £7,620 in fines and court costs.

The trial has been described in the press as long and protracted.

It had formed part of his case that there was not “sufficient” evidence to show that the testing equipment at the police station was working properly.

This was dismissed by the presiding Judge who ruled that there was a case for Cipriani to answer.

The Judge stated: “I am satisfied so that I am sure that the breathalyser test machine was working properly, gave a correct reading and on that basis the verdict is guilty.”

Solicitors for Mr Cipriani gave a statement that an appeal against the conviction was to be lodged immediately.
