Bury St Edmunds police stop suspected drink driver on A14 near Stowmarket with children in the backseat

A motorist was stopped after allegedly driving nearly four times over the limit with two children in the backseat.

In a tweet, Bury St Edmunds police said officers were made aware of the driver after receiving multiple calls of someone driving erratically on the A14.

The vehicle was stopped at Needham Lake near Stowmarket where the female driver blew 130 micrograms - which is almost four times the legal limit of 35 micrograms.

Both children in the vehicle were under the age of seven.
