A woman from the Borders, who was travelling with two children in her car, was found to be six times over the legal drink driving limit.

The 34-year-old was stopped on Seafield Place in Eyemouth at around 3.30pm on Wednesday 7th December.

She has been arrested and a report is being sent to the Procurator Fiscal.

"Police Scotland's annual festive drink-driving campaign is now underway and we will be robustly monitoring routes throughout the Borders to identify anyone who is driving while under the influence.

"Rest assured, if you are caught to be driving while over the limit, you will be arrested, you will lose your licence and this could have a significant impact on both your professional and personal life.

"Quite simply, do not risk it."

– Chief Inspector Andy McLean, Police Scotland
