Cambridgeshire Police has a designated, confidential hotline number to report drink drivers and those driving under the influence of drugs.

Using the 0800 032 0845 number, which is available 24/7, allows people to supply police with information to help to reduce the number of drink drivers on our roads.

The spokesman said: “When calling the number you will be asked to provide as much information as possible about the driver, including the name of the driver if possible, and the make, colour and index number of the vehicle.”
