Psychiatric report on drink-driver

Click to follow
An ambulance man convicted of drink-driving is to undergo a psychiatric examination before magistrates decide whether to send him to prison. Bernard Edwards, 51, pleaded guilty to drink-driving after crashing his ambulance into a car at Trefnant, near Denbigh, in North Wales, as he rushed a heart- attack victim to hospital at midnight on 24 January.

Denbigh magistrates agreed to adjourn the case until 14 April after Rachel Silverbeck, for the defence, said she was concerned about his mental health and requested a psychiatric report.
