Police stopped Leonard Fuller after three reports from the public of poor driving by the driver of a silver van in Eastbourne Road, Willingdon at 7pm on December 30.

The 59-year-old was unsteady on his feet and slurring his words when spoken to by officers.

He tested positive for 3.7mcg of cannabis chemical breakdown per litre of blood in his body.

At Hastings Magistrates’ Court on May 31 he admitted drug-driving, driving without valid insurance and driving without a valid MOT.

Fuller, unemployed of Stonedene Close, Forest Row, was disqualified for three years, fined £120, with £85 costs and a £48 surcharge.
