A driver has been arrested after swerving towards an oncoming police van while allegedly twice the legal drink drive limit.
Great Yarmouth Police tweeted in the early hours of this morning (January 20) that the driver had been arrested shortly after 4am.
The tweet also included the results of the breathalyser test, with the lowest reading being 72 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath.
The legal drink drive limit is 35 microgrammes.
Norfolk Police, along with colleagues from Suffolk, have been carrying out extra patrols and roadside checks throughout the winter as part of a campaign against drink driving.
