Officers caught a drink driver after they left their fog lights on.

Sgt Chris Harris was on patrol on the evening of Sunday, December 15, when he spotted a car with its front fog lights on in Queens Road, Attleborough.

On Twitter Breckland Police said: "Sgt Harris from Thetford was out on mobile patrols last night.
