Happy Friday.

Boozy farmer drunk at the reins

A farmer in Knebworth, England who downed 20 pints of Guinness in one boozy afternoon pleaded guilty last week to being drunk in charge of a horse and cart.

Adrian Whitaker, who had also drunk five alcopops, was reported to police after holding up a stream of traffic on a narrow country lane. When the 36-year-old was finally pulled over, he fell off the cart and landed at the feet of a police officer.

Prosecuting counsel Roseanne Smith told Central Hertfordshire Magistrates Court that Mr Whitaker already has a drink-driving ban for cars. He is due to be sentenced this week.
