POLICE Officers stopped Candice Cromack at 3.40am on December 24 when they saw she could not stay driving in a straight line on the A259 Marsh Road at Pevensey.

Officers found her driving a Nissan Qashqai in her pyjamas and bare feet, and she told them: “I need to get home to wrap my Christmas presents.”

She tested positive for 69mcg of alcohol per 100ml of breath.

At Hastings Magistrates’ Court, Cromack, 31, unemployed, or Murdock Mews, St Leonards, admitted drink-driving and was disqualified for three years. She must also pay a £120 fine with £85 costs and a £48 surcharge.
