Police were alerted to a drink-driver almost three times the limit in Buxton because she was driving without her headlights on in the early hours of the morning, a court heard.

Officers on London Road at 2.30am on December 1 saw a Ford Focus coming up behind them with no lights on, prosecutor Jennifer Fitzgerald said.

They pulled over to let the vehicle go in front and then followed it along London Road, illuminating their blue lights, but the car failed to stop, High Peak Magistrates’ Court heard.
