A man from Poplar has been convicted of drink-driving after being stopped by police in Southend.

Tommy Radford, of New Village Avenue, has been named and shamed by Essex Police as part of their Christmas anti-drink and drug driving campaign.

The 30-year-old was arrested on the A127 in Southend last month and was subsequently charged with drink-driving.

He was banned from driving for 23 months, must carry out 60 hours community service and pay £85 costs and an £85 victim surcharge.

A total of 148 people were arrested by Essex Police in December.

Adam Pipe, casualty reduction manager, said: “This was a really good month of action with our officers working tirelessly to identify and arrest drink and drug drivers.

“Unfortunately though I think this figure is just the tip of the iceberg.

“There are still people around our county who are acting selfishly, thinking they can get away with putting their safety, and that of other people, at risk.”
