A drink driver arrested in the Fens was more than four and a half times the legal limit.
The 157 reading was taken from a man involved in a crash on Thursday night in Guyhirn near Wisbech
“Needless to say, he was arrested after being 4.5 times the limit,” said a post by police on their Fenland Facebook page.
The driver’s reading of 157 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath compares to the legal limit of 35 microgrammes.
One post to police said: “How could you even walk, let alone drive”.

The reading is one of the highest recorded in Cambridgeshire this year.
