A woman who was allegedly four times over the legal drink-drive limit was arrested near a school, police have said.

A PSNI officer labelled the incident as "sickening".

The incident happened early on Wednesday morning.

Sharing an image of the car the woman was driving on the PSNI's Dungannon Facebook page, an officer said: "Drink driving at any time is disgusting but it's particularly sickening when it's in an area packed with school children.

"The female driver of this car was arrested early this morning more than FOUR times over the limit.

"Driving past hordes of school kids, before 9am, whilst more than four times over the limit - just take a minute to try and comprehend that."

Meanwhile, Road Policing Officers from Mahon Road said they had detected a vehicle travelling at 112mph within a 60mph limit on the A1 in Dromore yesterday.

"Speeds like this risk lives," an officer said. "The message is simple - wise up, slow down."
