A 47-YEAR-OLD Clitheroe woman who had been drinking wine at home got into her car to look for a family member who had gone missing from home.
Blackburn magistrates heard a police officer looking for the same man found Adele Wilson sitting in her car in the middle of a field having crashed through a fence on Slaidburn Road, Newton in Bowland.
And she immediately told him; “I’ve done something silly, I’ve drunk a bottle of wine.”
Wilson, of Shaw Bridge Street, Clitheroe, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol. She was banned from driving for 23 months and fined £400 with £125 costs. The court heard Wilson gave a reading of 114 against the legal limit of 35.
