The man was driving his black BMW at around 6.50pm before he crashed into two cars when pulling out on March Broad Street.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “Male driving was under the influence of alcohol and crashed into the railing at around 6:48pm.

“He was stumbling about outside his car and reportedly tried to get away. No one was injured and the car was recovered.”

An eye witness said: “People gathered around the vehicle after it made a mess of the railings surrounding the fountain in town.

“A silver Volkswagen looked as if it had been hit side on and the BMW was clearly embedded in the black railings – it looked a real state.”
