A new father was more than twice the drink-drive limit when he lost control of his car and ploughed down a railway embankment into a tree.

Andris Liepa, 28, had been celebrating the birth of his child and the New Year with alcohol and also a cannabis-type substance when he got into his car – a silver Lexus – in the early hours of New Year’s Day.
