An unemployed Lepperton woman lost her job and her freedom at night for three months after driving over the drink-driving limit for the third time.

Judge David McKegg commented that Deanne Kay Meyer, in her 30s, had lost her job as a result of going to her caregiver's job drunk.

"Alcohol is not your friend," he told her. Meyer was disqualified from driving for a year.

Do you have faith in police solving burglaries?

Yes - there's no faulting their commitment.

Mostly, but they are under-resourced.

Sort of - depends on when and where.

Not really - clearly a low priority for them.

Absolutely not.

Not sure - luckily I've never been burgled.
