TWO motorists in Eastbourne were banned from the roads after a police crackdown on drink-driving.

They are among 74 people who have now been banned from the roads after being arrested in June as part of Operation Dragonfly.

Jeremy Travis, 38, was arrested at 11.50pm on June 28, in Gilbert Road, Eastbourne, by officers on patrol.

Travis, of Pipit Meadow, Uckfield, pleaded guilty to failing to provide a specimen for analysis. He was banned from driving for 18 months and was ordered to go on an alcohol treatment course.

Christopher Sales, 34, had already served a ban for drink-driving when he was stopped by a patrol in Rattle Road, Pevensey, at 10.55pm on June 8, because he was driving erratically.

Sales, of Macquarie Quay, Eastbourne, pleaded guilty to drink-driving. He was banned from driving for three years, was ordered to do 120 hours of community service and was ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge and £185 court costs.
