An unlicensed drunk driver in Australia blamed her hungry cat for forcing her to drive while almost five times over the legal alcohol limit.

The 27-year-old woman told police she went to the shops to buy cat food when she was intercepted near her home in Mudgegonga, Victoria - about 200 miles (322km) northeast of Melbourne.

The rear window of the vehicle was smashed after the driver allegedly backed into a tree when she first got behind the wheel.

She will appear in court at a later date.
