More caught drink driving

MORE drink drivers have been caught in the first days of this year’s summer clampdown compared to last year.

Northamptonshire Police’s summer clampdown on drink-driving began at the start of June, and already 21 people have been arrested. This is four more than the number arrested in the same period last year.

Inspector Jen Helm, from the Operations Tactical Unit, said: “I am very pleased with what has been a strong start to this summer’s campaign.

“We want to make people think twice about driving after any alcohol.

“The best way to deal with the often unpredictable circumstances of driving is with no alcohol in the system at all.”
