60-year-old woman pleads guilty to drink-driving in Port Talbot
A WOMAN has pleaded guilty to being more than twice the drink-drive limit and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
Jennifer Anne Jury, 60, collided her car with a parked vehicle in Victoria Road, Port Talbot, and failed to stop at the scene.
When breathalysed, Jury had 83 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.
Defence solicitor Vince Williams said Jury had visited her daughter for her birthday and then decided to see her partner, who lives in Port Talbot, who was at a funeral.

Jury, of Coity Road, Bridgend, was disqualified from driving for three years and ordered to pay a £130 fine, £20 victim surcharge and £80 costs.
