Emma Hough aroused police suspicion when she drove away from a pub with a rear light out and was consistently speeding on June 18 at 12.30am.

Hough, 23, of Waring Drive, Thornton, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol.

She was banned from the road for 18 months, fined £20 with £85 costs and ordered to pay £21 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

She believe she was under the limit so she drove to drop off her car before they were to go on to a party.

Hough might now have to move to accommodation at the farm because of the distance between her home and work.
