A MUM was nearly six times over the limit when she handed the police a CD thinking it was her driving licence.

Isaura Matsinhe, 36, from Wales, had been drinking cocktails with friends when she decided to drive home, and was stopped by police.

A court heard the mother-of-one had been drinking wine with friends before she moved on to "strong cocktails" during a night out.

The care support worker was stopped by a police officer after they had to swerve their patrol car to avoid her, driving a silver Skoda.

Prosecutor Suzanne Cartwright said Matsinhe, had been driving in the middle of the road when she was pulled over in the village of Marchwiel near Wrexham.

She was so drunk that she tried to hand over a CD case from her glove box as her driving licence.
