The driver of an Audi stopped in the early hours of the morning ran off across fields on the outskirts of Clitheroe.

Blackburn magistrates heard that, half-an-hour later, Ryan Jepson was seen walking along Whalley Road in a dishevelled state, muddy from the knees down and not wearing any footwear.

Jepson (20), of Billington Gardens, Billington, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol. He was fined £200 with £105 costs and banned from driving for 13 months.

Mr Simon Farnsworth (defending) said his client, a former QEGS pupil, had never been in trouble before: “He accepts his behaviour was stupid and foolish,” said Mr Farnsworth.

“He is ashamed, embarrassed and sorry for what he did.”
