Ban for drink-driving aristocrat

A close friend of the Duke of Cambridge has been banned from the road for a third time after being found guilty of drink-driving after a visit to one of his exclusive London nightclubs.

Guy Pelly was barred from driving for two-and-a-half years and ordered to pay £7,120 in costs and fines.

London's Westminster Magistrates' Court heard it was the second time he had been banned for drink-driving.

In 2001 the aristocrat was pulled over for drink-driving while travelling home after partying during freshers' week at agricultural college.

He was previously banned for 56 days and fined £750 for speeding in 2012.
