TEENAGER Jack Butler ran out of a pub and jumped on his motorbike to ride home after his partner, who suffers from a heart condition, rang his mobile saying she felt unwell.

On Tuesday, Butler, of Saffron Close, Littleport appeared before Ely Magistrates where he admitted driving with excess alcohol.

The court heard that a breath test revealed 40 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
