A drink driver was arrested after police caught him doing 70mph in a 40mph limit with the lights on his car switched off.

King’s Lynn police said that the driver gave a reading of 58mg after being taken into custody. The legal limit is 35.

The man was one of two drink drivers arrested in the Lynn area after being stopped by police last night.

The other gave a reading of 93 - almost three times the legal limit.

Officers in the town later tweeted: “Two drink drivers dealt with this evening, both now waiting in custody to sober up and be dealt with in the morning. #fatal4 #DontDrinkAndDrive.”

Both will face an immediate ban from the roads pending a trip to court.
