A motorist is likely to be spending the night in a police cell after being caught on a Fenland road driving whilst FIVE times over the limit.
The reading was one of the highest on Cambridgeshire roads in recent times.
A police spokesman said: “A male has today been arrested following officers stopping him driving his vehicle in the village of Coates whilst five times over the legal drink drive limit.
“The male is currently in custody. Please take this as a reminder not to drink and drive,”
He can expect a massive fine, an almost certain three year ban if convicted, and likely community service if not prison.

In a message posted on the Cambs police Facebook page he added: “At four to five times the limit you may well have saved an innocent member of the public from losing their life.”
