Woman admits drink-drive charge.

A WOMAN, who had never driven a car in her life, got behind the wheel when she was drunk.

Victoria Jane Dykes, 28, of Highland Avenue, Queensferry took her partner's car and crashed into a wall.

Magistrates heard she got into the car after an argument on New Year's Day.

The ignition keys had been left inside and in drink she stupidly decided to start it up and drive, her solicitor Phillip Marshall-Thomas explained.

Following the crash in Queensferry, she was found to be more than three times the drink drive limit.

Dykes admitted a drink driving charge and sentence was adjourned so that compensation details could be obtained from the wall owners.

Mr Marshall-Thomas said she and her partner had been to see friends and had been drinking.

They returned home, had more drink and a trivial argument blew up.

She went out to give herself some space, decided to sit in his car, but the keys were in it and she "on the spur of the moment" stupidly started the car up and began to drive.

The vehicle had not gone far when the collision occurred.
