An underage motorist who was stopped by police for her erratic driving was let off, even though she had consumed "a couple of bottles" and had no licence, insurance or MOT.
A spokesman for Cheshire Police said the officers were in Runcorn to seize a vehicle for having no insurance when the underage driver rolled up to them in her little pink plastic car, veering from side to side.
When officers asked her parents if she had been drinking, they said she had had "a couple of bottles" that morning.
The officers played along and pretended to take a breath test.
A Cheshire Police spokesman said: "We’re here to support communities and we pride ourselves on our community engagement.
Thankfully, the tot’s reading was clear and she was free to go."
