For­mer Page 3 girl’s road ban for drink-driv­ing

Daily Mail - - Countdown To Brexit D-day -

A FOR­MER top­less model tried to avoid a drink-drive ban by claim­ing she was strug­gling to deal with the end of her pin-up ca­reer.

Holly Peers, 32, failed a breath test af­ter she was stopped driv­ing on a mo­tor­way lane that was closed off for roadworks. The ex-Page 3 girl, pic­tured, said she had two bot­tles of beer be­fore get­ting be­hind the wheel of her Fiat 500 on the M60 in Sal­ford last month.

A test showed Peers had 46 mi­cro­grams of al­co­hol in 100millil­itres of breath. The le­gal limit is 35mg.

Her lawyer Stephen Con­nor pleaded for clemency, say­ing a ban would hit her prospects of find­ing a new ca­reer as her mod­el­ling work was ‘dry­ing up’.

The ap­peal failed when Manch­ester mag­is­trates gave Peers, who ad­mit­ted drink-driv­ing, a 12-month ban and warned she ‘could have killed some­one’.
