Four teams of East Cambs police officers were on active patrol with the aim of cracking down on drivers who ignore the legal alcohol limit.

PC Gerry Cronin said: “We’ve had one chap who blew 10 - the legal limit is 35 microgrammes of alcohol to 100 millilitres of breath.

“He told us that he’d drank a glass of mulled wine about half an hour ago.

“He was pretty nervous when he was blowing into the tube.”

East Cambs also warned: “It just shows you that it’s really not worth it.

“Drink or drive - don’t risk it! If you’re thinking about it, better call a taxi.”
