Taunton woman caught drink driving two minutes after tip-off

A woman has been arrested just two minutes after we received a tip-off about a suspected drink-driver.

At 12.15am today (Saturday) police officers in Taunton were told given information by door staff at a pub about a suspected drink-driver.

The officers, from the Roads Policing Unit, responded and stopped a vehicle two minutes later

The driver was taken to the police station and was subsequently charged to appear in court.

This was the result of swift action by local officers who were supported by door staff and their close working relationship with us.

If you are going out tonight please consider sticking to soft drinks and, if you do choose to drink, make sure you stay below the drink-drive limit.

Speaking at the launch of our Christmas drink-driving campaign last month,, Chief Inspector Yan Georgiou said: "We know drink driving is one of the major causes of collisions and this is why we run Operation Tonic at this time of year. You risk being stopped and arrested by the police but, much worse than this, you could seriously injure or even kill someone."

If you see someone who you believe is driving under the influence of drink or drugs call the police on 999 or text 'drunk' and information on the vehicle, and the driver if you have this, to 81819.
