Hundreds of drink driving prosecutions could be thrown out after a High Court ruling that a breath alcohol test statement is invalid if it is in English only.

High Court Judge Mr Justice Seamus Noonan said there was "no ambiguity" in a law which says that gardaí - when using the Evidenzer alcohol breath test machine - must supply printouts from the machine in Irish and English.
