Daily Post and North Wales Weekly News

There is a story today concerning a lady from Llandudno which is so important that it is on the front page of the Daily Post but I cannot find one line about this story in today's North Wales Weekly News.

Does anybody know why this can happen to two newspapers within the same group ?

About the Mum on the School run 3 times over the DD limit with 4 kids in the car?   Only a 2 year ban - Disgusting!

Quote:  "she could lose her job as a tourist information manager with Conwy council as a result of the driving ban"

Let's wait and see.

Absolutely correct but who decides the story is not worthy of a mention in the NWWN?

and why?

The deadline for the NWWN will be earlier than the Post, maybe that could be the reason? It will probably be in next week's edition.

A MUM on the afternoon school run was almost three times the drink-drive limit.

Melanie Woodhouse had four children in her car when police arrested her outside Ysgol Craig y Don, Llandudno, magistrates heard yesterday.

Woodhouse, 35, of Fairways, Llandudno, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol and was banned for two years. She was also given a 12-month community order to include a drink-impaired driver’s course.

James Neary, prosecuting at Prestatyn magistrates’ court, said police were outside the school gates on March 16 checking on parents who parked on zig-zag lines.

They became concerned about Woodhouse as she tried to manoeuvre into a parking space, and when they approached her smelled alcohol on her breath.

When arrested she was found to have 100 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, the legal limit being 35.

Alex Fitzgerald, defending, said Woodhouse had an alcohol problem and suffered depression, for which she had been receiving counselling. He said she had driven to the school but had planned to walk with the kids to McDonald’s before driving home. He said she could lose her job as a tourist information manager with Conwy council as a result of the driving ban. “She is genuinely remorseful,” he added.

Tried to manoeuver into a parking space outside Ysgol Craig-y-Don. Seen Paddy do it on many occasion. Don't know how he does it sometimes.

Please note there would be no need for the parents to park on the zig-zag lines if something was done about the school staff parking their cars all day along Clarence Drive.

near our local school it's absolute chaos at 3.15 where various parents  attempt to manoevre their people carriers and 4 wheel drives around one another along the narrowest street in town. Seen many a stand-off causing gridlock at the nearby pedestrian crossing, exacerbated by 3 way traffic lights recently where some company spent a fortnight repairing a short stretch of pavement!

Are you intimating that dark forces may be at work, Bri?  ???
