Perth drink-driver

A woman who drove drunk through Perth’s Letham area has been banned for two years.

At Perth Sheriff Court, McPhee admitted having 50 mics of alcohol in her system, above the limit of 22 mics.

Sheriff Francis Gill banned her from the road for two years and placed her under supervision for 18 months.
