Coronation Street actress banned from driving

Wednesday April 14, 2010

Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver has been banned from driving after she was caught behind the wheel while intoxicated in Manchester.

The 46-year-old, who plays taxi operator Eileen Grimshaw in the ITV soap, was stopped near her home in Northenden when her car ran into the kerb.

After being breathalysed, police found Sue to be twice over the legal limit.

The actress told the court that her "spur-of-the-moment decision" to drive at night "could not have been more out of character."

She has been banned for 17 months and ordered to pay a £1,000 fine.
