A MOTORIST who denied driving while being more than six times the legal limit for drugs has had his case adjourned.

Wayne Andrew Harris is accused of driving a white BMW 320d in Cleator Moor while unfit due to drugs.

It is alleged that he had 309 micrograms of benzoylecgonine, a by-product of cocaine, in his blood.

The legal limit for benzoylecgonine is 50 micrograms.

The allegation relates to driving on the A5086/Parkside Road outside the Parkside Hotel on August 26 last year.

Harris, of Montreal Avenue in Cleator Moor, denied the charge on March 6 this year before magistrates.

A hearing was held on September 25 where the case was adjourned until October 14.

The 39-year-old defendant was not present during this short hearing.

The court instructed that the defendant must attend his upcoming case management hearing.
