Manchester United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe is banned from driving for 18 months after pleading guilty to being almost twice over the legal drink-drive limit.

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe has been handed an 18-month driving ban after pleading guilty to being over the legal limit when driving.

The 19-year-old was charged by police earlier this month after his car collided with a van while he was drink-driving in Manchester.

Tunnicliffe, who could have his ban reduced by four months if he attends a rehabilitation course, was also given an £800 fine.

Presiding magistrate District Judge Richardson of Bury Magistrates' Court said: "You are a well-paid athlete and the fine reflects that. It is a reflection of your income."

Tunnicliffe made his senior debut for the Red Devils during a League Cup match against Newcastle United last month.
