A Rhos-on-Sea woman’s birthday celebrations landed her with a prison sentence when she appeared at Llandudno magistrates’ court.

As Miriam Bevan tried to leave the car-park at the Old Station Hotel, Llandudno Junction, on September 14 she collided with a parked car.

She was found to have 85 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, the legal limit being 35.

But prosecutor James Neary said that Bevan, 27, of Woodlands Avenue, Rhos-on-Sea was on bail at the time, having been charged with a similar drink-drive offence on September 2, when she was stopped in Penrhyn Road, Rhos-on-Sea. On that occasion she had 69 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath.

The court also heard that in June, 2016, Bevan was banned from driving for 12 months for driving with excess alcohol.

Graham Parry, defending, said that on September 2 Bevan drove off after a row with her boyfriend and intended sleeping in her car, but was stopped by the police for not displaying lights.

On September 14 she had been having a birthday drink with friends but left the pub after an argument.

She told a probation officer that she was “absolutely gutted” to be appearing in court.

District Judge Gwyn Jones said it was clear that she was “significantly affected” by alcohol on both occasions.

He imposed a four-week prison sentence for the first offence and 10-week sentence for the second, to be suspended for 12 months.

Bevan, who admitted the two offences, was also banned from driving for four years, ordered to pay costs of £85 and a £115 surcharge, and ordered to undertake a rehabilitation requirement.
