A MAN who has had his court case adjourned many times finally has a trial date.

Daniel Hood, 36, is accused of drink-driving in Lidget Street in Lindley on November 12 and using a vehicle without a licence or insurances.

He is alleged to have had 102 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. However Hood, of Glenside Close in Edgerton, claims that he had only one pint.

The case was adjourned 11 times previously.

Hood’s solicitor has requested to see the run-off log of the police station breathalyser.

This shows the last 100 tests on the machine.

Magistrates have also heard that spiked drinks may be an issue.

Hood was told that his trial will now go ahead on February 4. He was granted unconditional bail.
