Chairman of the bench, Kevin Lloyd-Wright, told Davies she would be disqualified from driving for 14 months. 

Davies was offered the opportunity to take the drink-drive awareness course which, if successfully completed, will reduce her ban by 14 weeks. 

Davies was also fined £120 and ordered to pay costs of £135 and victim surcharge of £48 - a total of £303.

The case was heard at Worcester Magistrates Court on Thursday, (April 20).
