A Retford father was caught drink driving after he went out to get some milk.

Richard Lammie, 38, of Blue Bell Court, Ranskill, had been out drinking before he returned home to find that his child was crying because of a skin condition.

He said that milk usually helps with the condition so he decided to drive to a shop.

Police officers pulled him up in his Mercedes a short distance from his house and he recorded a low level reading but was over the limit.

He pleaded guilty at Worksop Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 3rd July and received a community order, £355 fine, £85 costs, £60 victim surcharge and was banned from driving for 26 months.
