A South Yorkshire police officer has been fined after admitting drink driving.

PC Adam Walker, aged 33, pleaded guilty to the offence during a hearing at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court.

He was caught over the limit while driving to work in Sheffield on December 27 last year.

Walker was fined £475, ordered to pay £85 in costs and was disqualified from driving for 12 months.

He was offered the opportunity to reduce the ban to nine months if he completes a drink-drive rehabilitation programme.

Walker has been suspended from his role at South Yorkshire Police and an internal misconduct hearing is planned.

Before the PC was suspended, he was office-based and did not drive police vehicles.
