Liquid lunch costs driver dear


A 32- year- old man was caught more than double the drink drive limit after enjoying a boozy lunch in Ayr.

Sean Aitchison, of Springhill Road, Shotts, was snared after a member of the public saw him get into his work van on May 14 while being under the influence.

He was caught on Holmston Road, Ayr with 47 microgramm­es of alcohol in 100 millilitre­s of breath, exceeding the limit of 22.

Sheriff Desmond Leslie told him: “You know the consequenc­es of this- you’ve already been disqualifi­ed from driving for a similar offence back in 2008.”

He was fined £ 400 and disqualifi­ed from driving for two years.
