A man who crashed his car into a fence at Cardea – between Whittlesey and Peterborough – was nearly three times over the limit.  

“This was the scene our Specials were met with,” said a Cambridgeshire police spokesperson posting a photo to their Facebook page. 

The officers came across the crashed car “when they were called out to a collision in Cardea on Friday evening where it was suspected the driver was drunk. 
 
“The driver was arrested and later charged with drink driving after he blew 99 in a roadside breath test – the legal limit is 35!!” 

The spokesperson added that he wasn’t the only one to be arrested for drink driving in Peterborough this weekend.
