He was charged and bailed to court.

A police spokesman said: “We were called at about 1.10am today (December 4) after a black and silver Mitsubishi Shogun hit parked vehicles in Verdun Road, Wisbech.

“The driver, a man in his 40s from Wisbech, provided a positive breath test and is currently in custody.”
