A 20-year-old woman has become the first in Britain to be convicted of drink driving on an e-scooter.   Kyah Jordan was almost three times over the limit when she went through a red light and almost crashed into an unmarked police car.<br />
<br />
In court, her lawyer tried to argue that she was travelling so slowly on the electrically powered contraption she couldn't have posed a danger to anyone.   But magistrates banned her from the road for two years, stating 'it's a motor vehicle, the same as a moped, the same as a bus'.   SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
