Driving to get a pizza whilst drunk, and hungry, has cost a Douglas man over £1,300 and his driving licence.

30-year-old Daniel Cain was twice the drink drive limit when he was arrested in the early hours of November 28th - he told police "guilty, hands up, no point in lying".

Officers had spotted him speeding near Circular Road and crossing the white line - despite travelling at speeds of up to 60mph themselves they struggled to catch up with him.

When they did so, on Demesne Road, they found Cain slumped on the steering wheel, smelling of intoxicants and mumbling - he needed help getting out of the car.

Sentencing him this week Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes said there was absolutely no reason for him to drive saying "you could have had a pizza delivered - it's going to be a very expensive pizza".

As well as the fine Cain has also been disqualified from driving for 30 months and ordered to take a drink drive rehabilitation course.
