A drink-driver has been arrested by police after being discovered to be over the limit with two children in the car.

The driver was pulled over by members of the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team (NSRAPT) in Norwich during the early hours of Sunday, January 19.

He had pulled out and narrowly avoided a collision with an unmarked police car.

After being taken into custody, the driver was found to have 62 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - almost twice the legal limit of 35mcg.

There were two young children on board the car at the time of the arrest.
