‘Poorly lady’ was 5 times over limit

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

A “POORLY lady” found slumped in a car by a pri­mary school­boy was FIVE times over the drink drive limit.

For­mer fire­fighter Ali­son Ad­cock, 45, had her eyes shut and her head on the head­rest of her Vaux­hall Vec­tra.

When the lad raised the alarm she had her seat­belt on and the car’s en­gine was run­ning.

A court heard she was so drunk that she can­not re­mem­ber if she had driven to the school in Tiver­ton, Devon, or had left the car there ear­lier.

She had downed half a bot­tle of vodka, and when asked by a teach­ing as­sis­tant what was wrong, replied: “My life.”

The mum of two ad­mit­ted drink driv­ing and told Ex­eter mag­is­trates she is now seek­ing help with her drink prob­lem.

They de­ferred sen­tence un­til Jan­uary and banned her from driv­ing till then.
