Two drink drivers including one involved in a three-vehicle crash were arrested after being over four times the legal limit. 

Police officers first spotted a 43-year-old man sat in the driver's seat of a car on Elm Road, Wisbech on July 16. 

In fact, officers found that the man was disqualified from driver after initial checks. 

A spokesperson on the Policing Fenland Facebook page said: “We conducted a roadside breath test, where he gave a reading of 153... the legal limit is 35!” 

The man was arrested, taken to custody in King’s Lynn and due to appear in court on September 1. 

Just hours later, police breathalysed a 44-year-old man who was involved in a three-vehicle crash on The Avenue, March. 

The man was breathalysed and gave a reading of 169, more than four times the legal limit,” said the police spokesperson.
