Police who stopped a car because of the way it was being driven found the driver had yet to pass their driving test - and was drunk behind the wheel.

Breckland police this morning tweeted that their suspicions over the manner of driving of the vehicle in Watton proved to be correct.

The driver only had a provisional licence and was driving without any supervision. Not only that, but they then failed a roadside breath test.

Police said they had seized the car and arrested the driver.

They later tweeted: “Once in custody the driver provided an evidential sample of 60 - the limit is 35 so once sober he will be charged to court.”
