Summer police operation will stop drivers on A52 Skegness and Ingoldmells

Seventy-five vehicles were stopped at Ingoldmells on Friday evening as part of a police commitment to keep people safe on the coast.

The stop-checks are designed to prevent, detect and deter drink and drug-driving, and form part of the Force’s Summertime Policing Plan.

Officers carried out the checks on the A52 and the surrounding area. While the majority of motorists passed tests with no issue, action was taken in four instances:

• A female driver was arrested on suspicion of driving over the drink-drive limit. The 31-year-old was charged with driving a motor vehicle when the alcohol level was above the legal limit. She is due to appear at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court, later this month.

• One search was carried out under the Misuse of Drugs Act, resulting in seizure of cannabis. The man, in his 50s and from the local area, has been referred for an intensive rehabilitation course.

• Two further document offences were also identified, against separate drivers.

Police have carried out these checks across the coast during the summer, having previously stopped drivers in both Skegness and Ingoldmells.

They form one part of a comprehensive Summertime Policing Plan, designed to keep residents and visitors safe during the summer months.
