POLICE in North Ayrshire arrested three people over the weekend for alleged drink driving.

The drivers, aged 18, 20 and 27, were arrested across North Ayrshire, with one being detected at nearly five times the legal limit.

PC Johnson, Preventions and Interventions Officer for North Ayrshire, said: “It is disappointing that a number of motorists have chosen to drive a vehicle whilst under the influence of alcohol. The only safe amount of alcohol to drink before driving is none.”

“These motorists placed themselves and other road users at risk through their actions and I would urge anyone who has information on those who drive under the influence of drink or drugs to contact our non-emergency number on 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111”
