A gamekeeper rolled his car and crashed into a garden hedge while committing his fourth offence of drink-driving, a court heard.

Gareth Kilshaw, 32, of East View, Winmarleigh, near Garstang, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol.

He was bailed for pre-sentence reports and will be sentenced at a later date by District Judge Huw Edwards, sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Don Green, prosecuting, said police were called to Kilcrash Road, Nateby, on June 3 at 7.45pm where Kilshaw had lost control of his Peugeot on a sharp bend, rolled the car and crashed into a hedge.

Kilshaw had three previous convictions on record for driving with excess alcohol from 2001, 2006 and 2010.
