Former Leicester City and England player Peter Shilton has been banned from the road after admitting drink-driving. The 63-year-old pleaded guilty to the charge during a 15-minute hearing at Colchester Magistrates' Court today. The court heard that he was found to have more than double the legal amount of alcohol in his system when he was breathalysed on February 24. He was driving a 2010-registered Jaguar XF near the home of his girlfriend, Stephanie Hayward, in Manor Road, Colchester, Essex at the time and was caught after an anonymous tip-off to police. As he left court, Shilton, England's most capped player, said: "I've nothing to say, really - just that I had a very fair hearing." Magistrate Ilona Perkins-Van Mil banned Shilton from driving for 20 months and ordered him to pay fines and costs totalling £1,020. He left in a taxi from the nearby Colchester Town railway station. Shilton was told he could face custody if he breached the ban and ordered him to pay the fine in full before leaving the building.
