A girl who was caught drink-driving at the age of 12 has been sentenced to a one-year supervision order.
The girl was caught twice the legal drink-drive limit
The girl, now 13, admitted to being nearly twice over the legal limit when she was caught in Swindon, Wiltshire, after a family party on Christmas Day.
She had driven eight miles before police stopped her. Newbury magistrates banned the girl, from West Berkshire, from driving for two years.
The girl is thought to be the youngest female ever caught drink-driving.
She left the court on Monday with her head covered and without making any comment to the media.
'Bouncing off kerb'
At an earlier hearing the girl pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicle taking, driving without licence or insurance and driving with alcohol above the legal limit.
The court was told that during the evening, she drank two bottles of beer, an alcopop and sipped from other people's drinks.
She then took her father's car keys and decided to visit another relative she had been texting during the evening.
When her father noticed the car keys were missing, the police were called.
The police officer who stopped her noticed she was "swerving all over the road, bouncing off the kerb".
She was breathalysed, and was found to have 65 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit is 35.
