PC Fraser Heaton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“As our response to this incident demonstrates, we are committed to protecting the public and will look to take appropriate action against anyone who threatens public safety in this way.

“The consequences of drink and dangerous driving can be devastating – for the driver themselves, other road users and pedestrians too – which is precisely why we take these matters seriously and will always seek to put suspects before the courts.”
