Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A MILKMAN who was caught driv­ing his float while FOUR TIMES over the le­gal drink drive limit has been banned from the roads for more than two years.

Gra­ham Lock was busy mak­ing de­liv­er­ies in his 15mph ve­hi­cle when he crashed into two parked cars at 4am.

Wit­nesses called 999 and of­fi­cers ar­rived at the scene in Brox­bourne, Herts, to find the 50-year-old milkman try­ing to drive off from the scene.


Lock was caught by of­fi­cers with the help of a mem­ber of the pub­lic, and a road­side breath test on De­cem­ber 6 last year showed 137 mi­cro­grams of al­co­hol in 100 millil­itres of breath.

He was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of drink driv­ing and was bailed un­til a hear­ing at St Al­bans Mag­is­trates’ Court on De­cem­ber 9.

Lock was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of drink driv­ing again af­ter be­ing caught on his float on De­cem­ber 8.

He ad­mit­ted drink driv­ing in re­la­tion to the first of­fence and po­lice re­vealed this week he re­mains on bail over the De­cem­ber 8 in­ci­dent, and could face fur­ther charges of drink driv­ing.

Lock had ad­mit­ted drink driv­ing and had been banned from the roads for two-and-a-half years at St Al­bans Mag­is­trates’ Court ear­lier this month.

He was also handed a com­mu­nity or­der and told to pay £270 in fines and court costs.

Lock re­mains on po­lice bail for the sec­ond drink driv­ing of­fence and is due to re­port to cops on Fe­bru­ary 9, where a de­ci­sion will be made whether to charge him.
