A STRETFORD woman has been hit with a ban for drug driving on a main road in Manchester.

Umbreena Hussain, of Montrose Avenue, appeared at Stockport Magistrates' Court on Monday, January 10.

The 45-year-old admitted to driving a Mercedes Benz C-Class on Kingsway last summer with 6.5 micrograms of cannabis per litre of blood in her system, or more than three times the limit.

She was banned from holding or obtaining a licence for a year, the automatic minimum ban for drug driving.

Magistrates at Stockport Magistrates' Court also ordered Hussain to pay a total of £440, including a fine, court costs and a surcharge.
