A drunk driver has been arrested by unmarked police as they rushed home with a chinese takeaway.

The driver began honking his horn behind the unmarked police car which was travelling within the speed limit.

They were pulled over and found to be double the legal limit following a breathalyser test.

Wiltshire Specials, who shared the arrest on their Twitter, joked: “Chinese will need reheating in the morning.”

They included a reference to the police’s Fatal 5 campaign, which highlights the five most dangerous mistakes made by drivers.

Number two is drink and drug driving, and number five is speeding.

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.
