A WOMAN was caught driving nearly three times over the limit after boozing all weekend at a Hen Party.

Kerry Louise Curran, aged 29, of Grovesnor Gardens, Newton-le-Willows, pleaded guilty to drink driving at Halton Magistrates Court on Thursday.

It heard how police were called to a road accident on Tanhouse Lane in Birchwood on January 28.

Lionel Cope, prosecuting, said officers arrived to find no drivers present.

Curran was found nearby and had been driving a black Audi.

She was breathalysed, providing a sample of 100 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

The legal limit is 35.

The court heard Curran has a ‘drink problem’ and had been drinking from Friday, January 24 to Monday, January 27, at a hen do.

She said she felt ‘fine to drive’ the following day.

The mum-of-three has a previous conviction for drink driving in 2005.

The hearing was adjourned for reports.

Curran will be sentenced on March 23.
