Ex-candidate in Gravesham banned from driving
A candidate in last year's general election has been fined £135 and banned from driving for 20 months after admitting drink driving.
Kathryn Smith, 51, of Welling, south-east London, fought the Gravesham constituency for the Labour Party.
Smith, a former council leader and deputy mayor of Bexley, pleaded guilty at Dartford Magistrates Court.
The charge followed a crash in University Way, Dartford, on 26 April. Smith was ordered to pay £615 costs.
Smith was defeated in the general election by Conservative Adam Holloway.
