A Peckham man charged with drink-driving has been granted a special reasons hearing after claiming that his acid reflux affected the breathalyser test.

Anthony Graeham, 41, was stopped at Seldon Road on October 19 last year and was found to be exceeding the driving limit with 57 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of his breath.

His defence solicitor has been granted eight weeks to produce a medical report confirming the link between acid reflux and incorrect breath tests.

This is the third time Graeham’s trial has been adjourned since his first listing on November 3, after he went to Jamaica for 90 days to mourn the death of his grandfather.

Graeme, of Evelina Road, Peckham will return to Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court on July 15.
