A woman who police believe was “unfit to drive” was arrested and charged after refusing to co-operate during a roadside breath test.

The 36-year-old was driving a smashed-up car on Bedford Street in Wisbech on Saturday, October 10 when she caught the attention of officers.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “The driver refused to co-operate with a roadside breath test and was arrested for failing to provide a sample of breath.

“At the police station the driver again refused to co-operate with providing an evidential sample.

“A 36-year-old female from Wisbech has since been charged with failing to provide a specimen for analysis and will appear in court at a later date.”
