A MAN drove a company car belonging to his boss even though he had not passed his driving test.

Stuart Anderson went on to crash the car, writing it off.

And when police arrived at the scene he failed a breath test.

Anderson, of Rectory Road, Marton, Blackpool, admitted drink driving and using a Ford Mondeo without insurance when he appeared at Blackpool Magistrates Court.

Martin Connah, prosecuting, said police were called to the crash on Crossley’s Bridge, Marton.

Pub worker Anderson, 34, appeared to be in a drunken state and was tested.

Allan Cobain, defending, said his client had offered to pick up a computer in Blackpool for his boss.

However, he had started to watch TV and drank a few cans of beer before remembering what he said he would do.

Mr Cobain said: “My client has a provisional licence and has never had the time to take his test.”

Magistrates adjourned sentence for the preparation of reports.
