More than 20 motorists joined the Cambridgeshire drink drive ‘wall of shame’ having lost their licences for drink driving or failing to provide a breath test this month.

Cambridgeshire Police issued a reminder, too, that they are supporting a new national campaign by Sussex Police and Surrey Police calling on the public and friends of drink drivers to prevent, persuade and – as a last resort – report drink drivers to police.

“So far this month officers have been cracking down on drivers while out on patrol and have carried out roadside checks across the county – and these will continue,” said a Cambridgeshire police spokesperson.

“In addition, a dedicated road policing operation will take place this Friday (23 December) across the county led by officers from the Beds, Cambs and Herts (BCH) Road Policing Unit alongside local officers.”

Those arrested, charged and sentenced so far this month include:
