A Wroughton motorist has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving near to where he lives. 

Police said the driver was spotted driving "erratically" and was found to be over double the legal alcohol driving limit just past midnight on Friday (March 22).

He is said to have had 76 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, over double the 35 microgram limit.

Wiltshire Specialist Operations suggested the man "should have walked, as he did not live very far from the pub".

They referenced the police’s Fatal Five campaign, which highlights the five most dangerous mistakes made by drivers.

Number two is drink and drug driving.

What is the drink drive alcohol limit in England?

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland you are not allowed to drive with more than 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.

Alcohol affects everyone differently meaning that there is no hard and fast rule for the number of drinks you can safely have before driving. 

Police advice states that the only safe option is to avoid alcohol completely if you’re driving as even ‘just one drink’ could put you over the limit.
