People were seen queuing out the door of a liquor store in Leith St last night.
Meanwhile, a 32-year-old woman was pulled over on Stevenson Rd and found to be driving with a breath-alcohol level of 600mcg.
She had been drinking at home, but due to the lockdown announcement wanted to buy more alcohol.
The breath alcohol limit for drivers aged 20 or over is 250mcg. There is a zero alcohol limit for drivers under 20.
