A woman was more than three times over the drinkdrive limit on a mo­tor­way slip road. Rachel Fi­ennes, 58, has now been banned from the road for five years and given a sus­pended prison sen­tence. A court heard that Fi­ennes, of Har­net Street, Sand­wich, drove a Mini on the M20 slip road at Junc­tion 9, Ash­ford, on Thurs­day, June 8. She gave a breath test of 126 mi­cro­grammes of al­co­hol in 100 millil­itres of breath. The le­gal limit is 35. She pleaded guilty to drink-driv­ing. Folke­stone mag­is­trates, on Wed­nes­day, June 28, gave her a 12-week prison sen­tence, sus­pended for two years. She must also pay £85 costs and a £115 vic­tim sur­charge.
