A motorist blew more than four times the legal drink drive limit on the breathalyser after veering off the road into bushes on an M50 junction.

The incident a week last Tuesday (November 8) saw junction one closed while police dealt with the driver and arranged for the vehicle to be recovered.

Gloucester Police Specialist Operations posted: “Junction 1 of the M50 temporarily closed to recover a drink driver’s vehicle. Thought it was OK to drive over the limit! Blew 148, legal limit being 35.”
