Inspector Simon Allen, said: "This incident took place whilst officers were patrolling the streets of Coddington.

"We are always on the lookout for dangerous drivers and drink-driving is something that we absolutely won't tolerate in Nottinghamshire.

"Thankfully no one was injured but being behind the wheel when over the limit is so dangerous and has caused some of the most serious incidents on our roads."

Nottinghamshire Police continues its operations to tackle drink and drug driving. If you suspect someone may be driving whilst over the limit, please call 101.

Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
