A DRUNK mum was spotted by police standing alone beside her car with the engine running in the early hours.

Heather Read, 31, was found to be more than twice the drink-drive limit.

Read, from Broxburn, was yesterday fined £200 and banned from driving for a year after pleading guilty at Livingston Sheriff Court to driving while over the limit on September 29.

Neil Robertson, defending, said Read had drunk after dropping into a pub to give money to a friend and realised she should not have driven.
