A FEW 'cheeky' glasses of Prosecco landed a 35-year-old woman in court on a drink driving charge after she crashed into a hedge in Chipping Campden, Glos.

Cheltenham Magistrates Court heard yesterday that Fiona Knight, of Railway Crescent, Shipston On Stour, had drunk Prosecco on April 2 before driving her grey Ford Fusion car.

The court was told she needed to drive because the rural location of her home meant getting a taxi was difficult.

Prosecuting Matthew McCabe said: "In the early hours of the morning Mrs Knight came off the road and was found by a member of the public sitting in her car."

She had 62 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath when she was breath tested after crashing her car into a hedge on Pudlicott Lane, Chipping Camden. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Knight told the court:"I had a few proseccos in the pub and I live in an area that is hard to get around and I made the decision to drive home."

She pleaded guilty to driving while under the influence of alcohol and magistrates banned her from driving for 18 months and ordered her to pay a £330 fine, £85 prosecution costs and a £33 victim surcharge.
