During the early houses of Sunday morning a car containing four people under the age of 20 was stopped in Diss.

A wet night with slippery roads, the vehicle had two defective front tyres where the cord was exposed which made it unsafe to drive.

South Norfolk police said a traffic offence report was issued.

Breckland police carried out proactive patrols of the estates and town centre of Thetford overnight.

One person was arrested for drug driving -cannabis - and just 10 minutes later another unit arrested a drink driver.

A man was arrested in King’s Lynn on Saturday evening for drink driving.

He blew 89 microgrammes (ugs) per 100 millilitres of breath at the roadside and 95ugs in custody - nearly three times above the limit of 35ugs per 100mm of breath.

Police said he was on his way to work where he uses machinery.
