A drink driver was caught four times over the limit as he drove his friend’s mobility car.

William McGhee was spotted by neighbours as he staggered from the vehicle after driving to buy more alcohol during an afternoon drinking session.

Unemployed McGhee, of 10 Muirfield Crescent, Gullane, tried to blame the huge reading on “post-incident drinking” when police turned up at his door.

But expert reports proved the 51-year-old was lying and he was fined £550 and banned from the road for 18 months when he appeared at Haddington Sheriff Court on Wednesday last week.
