A JOB can­di­date at­tended an in­ter­view with po­lice and was ar­rested for be­ing over the le­gal drink-drive limit.

The man, in his 50s, was hop­ing to se­cure an IT sup­port role at Greater Manchester Po­lice last month when his in­ter­viewer no­ticed an “over­pow­er­ing” smell of al­co­hol as the can­di­date stepped into an of­fice at the force’s train­ing cen­tre at Sed­g­ley Park, North Manchester.

A traf­fic of­fi­cer was called and the in­ter­vie­wee ad­mit­ted he’d shared a bot­tle of wine with his wife the pre­vi­ous night.

The un­named man was es­corted out of the build­ing and breathal­ysed, which showed he was over the drink-drive limit.

He was then taken to a nearby po­lice sta­tion where he gave an­other pos­i­tive read­ing and was sub­se­quently charged with drink-driv­ing.

Last week the man ap­peared be­fore Bury mag­is­trates and was banned from driv­ing for a year.
