Nash’s solicitor Lisa Tinsley said her client accepted he was over the limit.

She added: “He has had a stressful period and tells me his life had broken down.”

Nash, of Stanwood Drive, Walton, admitted drink driving.

A magistrate said he hoped the incident was an “isolated” one.

The defendant was handed a 20-month driving ban, a £300 fine, £85 court costs and a £34 victim surcharge.
