Two drink-drivers have been caught by Cambridgeshire Police, one in March and one in Wisbech.

Firstly, a 40-year-old man was seen driving "erratically" on Asplin Avenue, March, last month.

The man from Chatteris was stopped and breathalysed by officers, giving a reading of 103 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath.

This reading is almost three-times the legal limit of 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath.

The individual has now been sentenced to 16 weeks in prison, suspended for two years.

He has also been disqualified from driving for five years.

Secondly, a 43-year-old man from Wisbech was reported to be drink-driving by a member of the public.
