Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DRUNKEN pen­sioner who was thrown out of a Sal­ford pub for try­ing to hit the land­lord got into his car and took his wife on a rush-hour ram­page.

Derek Mitchell drove on the wrong side of the road and ploughed head on into two on­com­ing cars on Fe­bru­ary 14.

The 68-year-old, who was twice over the limit, drove on and crashed into a third car on the wrong side of the road.

Manch­ester mag­is­trates heard that Mitchell had been kicked out of a pub in Liver­pool Road, Sal­ford, for be­ing abu­sive and try­ing to hit the land­lord.

He ad­mit­ted drink driv­ing, dan­ger­ous driv­ing, fail­ing to stop af­ter an ac­ci­dent, hav­ing no in­sur­ance and two counts of as­sault.

Mitchell, of Ir­lam, will be sen­tenced on April 26.
