Police were called to assist a driver who had broken down in Paston Ridings. When they arrived, however, they found the driver was disqualified from driving and therefore had no insurance and was also three times over the limit.

Police also responded after they were called by staff at McDonalds in Hampton who were concerned about the behaviour of a man believed to be drunk.

The man in his 20s was arrested after they found he was twice the legal drink drive limit.
