The 35-year-old Ribble Drive, Pemberton, appeared before Wigan justices facing the allegations that he was first breath-tested on October 12 and gave a reading on Scot Lane of 132 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath when the limit is 35, then on Borrowdale Road on November 24 he was breathalysed again and this time gave a reading of 66 microgrammes.

Fury has denied all the charges and will return to the same court on February 21.
