Ex-Lincolnshire policeman admits drink-driving

A former roads policing sergeant is unlikely to work as a police officer again after he admitted drinking and driving.

Craig Dunderdale, 41, worked for Lincolnshire Police when his Skoda was stopped during a Christmas anti drink-driving campaign run by the force.

A test showed he had 137 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit is 80 milligrams.

He has been fined £100 and banned from driving for 16 months.

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Police said Dunderdale was off-duty when he was stopped in Lincoln at 22:45 GMT on 17 December, and resigned from the force shortly after.

Dunderdale, of Authorpe, Louth, pleaded guilty at Lincoln Magistrates' Court.

As well as the fine he was ordered to pay £85 towards legal costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

He can reduce his driving ban by 16 weeks if he completes a drink-driving rehabilitation course.
