25 fine and ban on driver
   When two police officers looked into a van which had pulled up in the centre of the road, they found a man slouched over the wheel.
   His eyes were glassy and as one of the officers was about to speak to him he mumbled incoherently. Then he slammed the door and drove off on the wrong side of the road.
   Wigan County magistrates were told this today when Aldey Price (25), general dealer, of the Caravan Site, Careless Lane, Higher Ince, pleaded guilty to driving while under the influence of drink and was fined 25 with 12 10s. costs.
   He was also disqualified from driving for 12 months.
   Prosecuting, Mr. Tom Fishwick said that at the police station Price slumped in a chair with his right arm on a table and said he didn't want his own doctor to examine him.
   Today Mr. Tuite asked Price if he wished to say anything and he replied: "Nothing, nothing whatever."
   In addition to this offence Price was also before the court for using a lorry with dangerous wings and the rear index mark not illuminated.
   On these two summonses he was fined an additional 3.
