A drink-driver more than seven times the alcohol limit who failed to stop for police near Tenby has been jailed for three months.

Officers acted on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 11, after they were made aware of a possible drink driver travelling west from St Clears.

The vehicle was later sighted on the A477 and attempts were made to stop the vehicle, however the driver failed to stop and a pursuit was authorised, leading to a stinger being successfully deployed on the A478 between Tenby and Pentlepoir bringing the matter to a safe conclusion.

When tested, the motorist was found to have 247 microgrammes of alcohol per 100ml of breath, with the legal limit being 35 microgrammes, putting him over seven times the drink-drive limit.

Fifty-year-old Richard Edmond Cary, Brynhoffnant, Llandysul, was given a three month term or imprisonment at Llanelli magistrates on Friday when he admitted charges of drink driving; failing to stop when required; driving while disqualified, and driving with no insurance.

He was also disqualified from driving until June, 2022, and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £115.
