TUCKING into generous helpings of Christmas pudding could land motorists in trouble with the law during the festive season, a new report warned yesterday.

The latest research reveals that tasty recipes from some of our most popular TV chefs and food retailers contain a cocktail of spirits. The newest Italian creation from Nigella Lawson uses more than six units of alcohol, including Tuaca liqueur and Marsala, a fortified wine.

And she is not alone, with Delia Smith, Jamie Oliver and Heston Blumenthal, along with Asda, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose, offering up delicious puds that pack quite a potent punch.

Now car accessories retailer Halfords, which carried out the study, is warning customers that these dishes could leave us too woozy to drive.
