Sgt Chris Harris tweeted he stopped the driver for speeding and he was then tested for the amount of alcohol in his system.

The test found the driver was over the limit and he was later charged with drink driving on Saturday.

Sgt Harris said the driver had passed three police witness boards asking drivers for information following a crash that killed Jordon Watson, 19 and from Lakenham, on Saturday, May 13.

Sgt Harris, who tweeted about the offence at 10.06am on Saturday, said the speeding matter would be presented as part of the evidence to the court when the driver is prosecuted.
