‘Erratic’ drink driver stops in the middle of the M6 near Preston

Written by on June 15, 2020

A drink driver has been arrested after deciding to stop their van for police in the middle of the M6 motorway.

The incident happened near Preston after Lancashire Constabulary received reports of an “erratic” driver van on the highway near the city.

Officers quickly intercepted the white van just after 4.30am today (June 15), with the mindless driver deciding to stop for police in the road rather than pulling on to the hard shoulder.

After a number of enquiries officers found the driver was over the drink drive limit and also disqualified from getting behind the wheel.

They were arrested and the van was seized by police.

A Lancashire Road Police spokesperson tweeted: “Report of this van being driven in an erratic manner on the M6 Preston, it was intercepted by patrols where it then stopped in lane one.

“Driver provided a positive breath test and enquiries showed that they were disqualified.

“Driver arrested and the van seized.”
