A tourist has been arrested after 'drink driving' from her friend's caravan to her own in a holiday park in Wales.

A court was told yesterday how a policeman, who was at the Presthaven Sands Holiday Park in Gronant on another matter, followed Lisa Docktray, 41, after being concerned at the way she was driving.

Ms Docktray was found to have an alcohol reading of 102 microgrammes, well above the legal limit of 35.

She was banned from driving for two years, fined £85, and sent on a drink impaired driver's course run by the probation service.

Gwyn Jones, defending, said his client believed it was OK to drive as she thought the holiday park was private land.

He told the Daily Post: "She believed that it was private ground and that she could drive.
"This was the first time she had done it."

It was explained to her that if the pubic had even limited access, then it was a public area.
Mr Jones said Ms Docktray was a "lady of unblemished character", who was "ashamed" of her behaviour.
