Police were called to reports that two men were laying in a green Honda Civic in Allens Yard, Chatteris, at around 3.30pm on Monday March 21.

Officers arrived on the scene to find the men unresponsive, so an ambulance was called.

The driver, a 57-year-old man from Chatteris, was later arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol after he blew 74 on a roadside breath test – more than double the legal limit of 35.

The passenger was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon.

The driver of the car has been bailed to return to King’s Lynn Police Station Investigation Centre on April 21.
