A drunk driver has sustained serious injuries after driving over a roundabout and hitting a lamppost in Peterborough.
The incident took place on the roundabout at the entrance to Cardea on the A605 at around 11pm last night (March 31).
The driver of a Volkswagen Golf, who failed a roadside breath test, is believed to have driven straight over the roundabout before crashing into a lamppost.
