A drink driver was found to be over four times the legal limit after hitting a wall in Newmarket last night.

Police were called at approximately 9.30pm on Thursday 5th August to reports of a road traffic collision in the town.

A Suzuki Swift travelling along the High Street left the road and collided with a wall, at the junction with Grosvenor Yard.

The driver, a woman in her 30s, failed a roadside breath test and was arrested on suspicion of driving with excess alcohol.

She was taken to West Suffolk Hospital as a precaution where she was treated for minor injuries, and subsequently taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

She has since been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
