Top footballer given driving ban
Dave Kitson
The Premiership player was also fined 1,000
Reading striker Dave Kitson has received a driving ban for failing to provide a breath sample and failing to co-operate in providing a sample.

Reading Magistrates' Court also fined the footballer 1,000 and ordered him to pay 60 costs.

The 27-year-old was stopped on Wednesday near his house in Shinfield, near Reading, Berkshire.

Mr Kitson's 18-month driving ban will be reduced to 14 months if he completes a drink-driving course.
