A BISHOP'S Waltham teenage driver drove with cocaine in his body, a court heard.

Jacob Allen, 18, of Hamble Springs, was caught by police on September 23 at Morestead near Winchester whilst driving a 08-reg Vauxhall Corsa.

His level of benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, was 253ug/l, five times the legal limit. He was aged 17 at the time of the offence.

Allen admitted the charge and was banned from driving for 12 months by magistrates in Basingstoke, fined £120 and ordered to pay a £32 victim surcharge and £85 costs.
