A man has been charged with drink driving at an east coast holiday park.

Police were called to the Caister Haven Holiday Park in Ormesby Road at 12.20am to reports that a vehicle had struck a fence of the outside decking area at the on-site Mash and Barrel bar and restaurant.

Upon arrival police found a Mercedes had crashed and a fence was damaged.

Robert Bloxham, 47, of Crick in Northamptonshire, was charged by police with driving with excess alcohol after being taken to Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre (PIC) for questioning on Sunday.

A caravan owner at the site, who wished to remain anonymous, said it was a shame to see the seating area damaged just before the start of the school summer holidays.
