AN interim ban has been given to a drink-driver caught at Bishopsteignton.

The case was adjourned to July 6 for a pre-sentence report. He was given an interim driving ban until the case has been dealt with.

He also pleaded guilty to careless driving at Bishopsteignton on January 12 of this year.

Randall was granted unconditional bail.

A charge that he had failed to stop when asked by a police officer was withdrawn by the prosecution.
