BBC Radio 3 presenter ‘found slumped’ in car

A presenter of Scottish and Irish music for BBC Radio Scotland, Radio 3, BBC2 and BBC 4, was found slumped drunk in a stationary car, blocking a narrow Highlands road.

Mary Ann Kennedy, 47, was said to be seven times over the drink-drive limit. She’s been banned for four years.

It’s her second ban.

    • Why is it cruel? Nothing wrong with a bit of public shaming for this sort of thing. What about the pedestrians, cyclists or motorists she could have injured/killed while under the influence?

  • Agreed – I would suggest you take this down. Unkind and unnecessary to make this public – and to finish with a flip comment is puerile.

  • Isn’t drink driving far more cruel? As a long-quit drinker and long-time driver myself, but who never drove after any alcohol, I have no sympathy for anyone who does, no matter how pretty they might look. The resulting roadside corpses look far from glamorous. A life-time ban is the only just form of public protection.

  • I’m sorry but I can’t refrain from saying once again that NL unfortunately has a weakness for sensationalism. He has previously removed my comments, but I will be delighted this time if he removes the complete article.

      • “BBC Radio 3 Presenter ‘Found Slumped’ in Car”: if you dont think that’s a sensationalist headline, then you can’t see further than the words. Which of these two papers, The Guardian or The Sun would any English reader associate with this headline? That says it.
