A SAUCHIE woman was found behind the wheel of a car while six times over the drink-driving limit.

The sky-high reading was recorded by Elizabeth McCormick in Alloa.

Elizabeth McCormick, of Branshill Park, appeared in the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court for sentencing on Thursday, April 22.

However, matters were adjourned as the social work report was not available because of a lack of co-operation from McCormick.

The 59-year-old previously admitted that on January 30 at Alloa railway station she drove a car after consuming excess alcohol.

Her reading was 138 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the legal limit being 22 microgrammes.

Defence solicitor Robert Smith said: "She's been burying her head in the sand."

He added that she had been dealing with a lot of personal problems lately.

Sheriff Simon Collins responded: "She better stop burying her head in the sand."

He then told McCormick he would give her one more chance to co-operate with the social work department to obtain the report or else she risked being remanded in custody.

McCormick will return to court for sentencing on May 20.
