Two passers-by helped pull a driver to safety after his car crashed into a ditch just off the A1101 in Cambridgeshire. The man’s relief at being rescued was short lived, however, after police who arrived soon afterwards and discovered he was over the drink drive limit.

Brief details of the incident were given last night by Cambridgeshire police.
