Officers detained the driver, who then failed a roadside breath test and was arrested for driving under the influence.

A police spokesman said: "Luckily for both driver and his passenger, only slight injuries were sustained, and our colleagues at the East of England Ambulance Service transported them to hospital for a check over where they were given the all clear.

"The damage sustained to the vehicle shows just how lucky both were, and how lucky it is also no one else was involved. Driving under the influence will not be tolerated by officers and investigations are ongoing."
