Drivers were on their best behaviour in Fenland last night.

About 150 vehicles were stopped across March and Wisbech for drink drive checks ... and not one failed.

A number of people were breathalysed and no one failed the breath test, but one man gave a reading of 27ugs, (8ugs under the 35ugs legal limit).

A police spokesman said: “Once again, please stop and think before you get behind the wheel after drinking during the festive period. Checks will continue over the Christmas and New Year period.

“Think - is it worth your driving licence?”
