This car was destroyed after a crash in Hebden Bridge in the early hours of Saturday

Police have again warned about the dangers of drink driving after this car was written off in Hebden Bridge.

The incident in Ackroyd Lane in the early hours of Saturday morning saw two vehicles destroyed, as well as two garages and a wall, and it also took out the electrical power in the area for over nine hours.

The driver, a 25-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and bailed.

Last week police began a Christmas crackdown on drink and drug driving.

The Christmas drink drive campaign last year resulted in 1,531 roadside breath tests being carried out in West Yorkshire.

Of those, 15 per cent - 240 - resulted in either a positive test or refusal to provide and an arrest being made.
