Crime news

A drunken woman’s car rolled around a car park with her still at the wheel, a court heard.

Jaswinder O’Hara, 46, took no notice of onlookers trying to raise the alarm as her head slumped on the steering wheel.

Her Corsa had already hit a Volkswagen parked in the Mill Street car park in Kirkham and the owner of that vehicle photographed O’Hara as she drove off in the Corsa .

Police were called and traced O’Hara to an address on Meadow Close, Clifton.

Officers watched as she drove home.

She stalled her car and hit a kerb.

She was arrested and when blood tests were done was found to be almost three times over the limit.

She admitted drink driving and failing to stop after the accident in the car park.

Blackpool magistrates ordered pre-sentence reports on her after hearing she had previous convictions for the same offences.
