A driver who was found to be almost five times the legal alcohol limit after a crash in Chatteris this morning has been arrested.
The driver provided a reading of 171 - however the legal limit is 35.
She was arrested and then taken to hospital. Inquiries are ongoing.
It is an offence to drive, attempt to drive, or be in charge of a motor vehicle on a road or public place if the level of alcohol in your breath, blood or urine exceeds the prescribed limit.
According to www.gov.uk someone can be imprisoned, banned from driving and face a fine if you're found guilty of drink-driving.
