Student was nearly three times over limit

A student got behind the wheel of the car while over the drink drive limit following an argument with his ex-girlfriend.

Police were tipped off in the early hours of Tuesday October 2 that a man who had been driving away from a pub had been drinking.

They saw the white Ford Fiesta, driven by Shane Coffey, was going the wrong way down a one-way street in Eastbourne and when they spoke to him they noticed he was drunk, unsteady on his feet and smelt of alcohol.
