British Transport Police officers returning back to the office found an ‘erratic’ driver from Oldham, in Rhyl.

Last night whilst returning to the office from an incident, the officers said “we came across a vehicle driving erratically”.

The vehicle was stopped in Rhyl and the driver breathalysed, officer have said, “They said they’d fail the breath test. They were right – they blew 92.

“They then curiously said they would pass the evidential test in custody. They didn’t.”

“They blew 89 in custody – more than 2 times the limit of 35 – so they have been charged with drink driving.”

No details have been released if any Covid-19 related charges have also been made, with the officers saying the driver told them they had “driven from Oldham” over 80 miles away.
