Banned Devon cyclist Jonathan Tiernan-Locke has also been disqualified from driving.

The racer cannot cycle competitively until the end of the year, after being found guilty of doping violations by the sport's governing body.

Today he appeared before magistrates charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in Plymouth earlier this year.

He has been banned from driving for 17 months.
