Police stopped the drink driver in Intake.

Announcing the driver’s arrest last week, a spokesman said: “He quickly ran out of talent and tried to run from the pursuing officers instead.

“Unfortunately for him his lack of a ability to run was only matched by his lack of ability to drive.

“He has been arrested for various driving offences and the van is being recovered.”
