Police in Fenland have thanked an eagle-eyed motorist who flagged down police after spotting another driver “all over the road”. 

They praised the member of the public for being in the right place at the right time on Monday night (April 19) at Nene Quay, Wisbech.  

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “A driver carrying out their business spotted a vehicle that was all over the road. 

“Right place, right time officers were travelling towards them; the driver flagged down the officers who then stopped the vehicle. 

“The offending driver gave a positive road side breath test by blowing 104, limit 35.
