It’s a man’s life

A drunken soldier who caused three car crashes and ran over a policeman's foot has been spared prison - because he is needed to clear mines in Afghanistan.

Trooper Henry Wallace, 21, had downed a staggering 11 pints of lager and six shots in just two hours before jumping into his Mazda 323 sports car.

He was seen by police officers who tried to get him to stop but he ended up colliding with three different cars before he was arrested.
