FOOTBALL fan Steven Hurrell was caught drink driving when he moved a car at Ely railway station, magistrates were told.

Police saw Hurrell get out of a Ford Fiesta in the car park around 11.20pm, and noticed he was unsteady on his feet and his eyes were glazed.

Hurrell, who was on his way home from a match in Norwich, later gave a breath test reading almost double the legal alcohol limit.

Hurrell, 45, of Priory Close, Burwell, admitted drink driving at the railway station on March 27. Ely magistrates banned him from driving for 78 weeks and fined him �300 with �85 costs and a �15 surcharge.

The court heard that Hurrell had moved his son's vehicle just three quarters of a car's length before being seen by police. His son had wanted the car moving to a different parking bay.
