Watford councillor Hugh O'Hanlon was convicted of drink driving at Watford Magistrates Court today.

O'Hanlon, 55, of Radlett Road, Watford, was stopped by police outside his home address on June 19.

O'Hanlon gave a breath test and was found to be just under three times the legal drink drive limit.

At Watford Magistrates, he pleaded guilty to drink driving and driving without insurance.

Chairman of the bench Robin McCarthy imposed an interim disqualification while reports were compiled for sentencing on August 5.

O'Hanlon represents Tudor Ward for Watford Borough Council and was re-elected in May this year.
