LADY Jane Benson, formerly Lady Jane Lowther, has been banned from driving for 12 months after failing a roadside breath test in the centre of Penrith.

The 57-year-old Joint Master of the Ullswater Foxhounds was arrested and taken to the police station where she was asked to complete another breath test. She was unable to give a reading despite two attempts – and a custody sergeant believed it was because she was too drunk.

Benson, of Rose Cottage, Askham, was also fined £270 with £58 costs by magistrates in Cumbria after she admitted failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis on July 31.
