An unlicensed drink driver who crashed his car in March was almost FOUR times the legal limit.
Police officers were called to a damage-only road traffic collision on the Upwell Road junction with Morton Avenue at 3.43pm yesterday (Tuesday October 3).
The driver of a Black Vauxhall Vectra failed the roadside breath test as he gave a reading of 130ugs, whereas the legal limit is 35ugs.
The driver was arrested and he was taken to the Police Investigation Centre at King’s Lynn where inquiries continue.
The vehicle was seized under section 165 of the Road Traffic Act as the driver did not have a driving license.
It comes after an incident in July this year when a morning drink driver was stopped in Gaul Road, March, and found to be five times the legal limit.
A police spokesman said: “Officers were deployed and arrested a 46-year-old man on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol after he blew 184 in a roadside breath test.”
