‘WE’RE still looking for you’ police have warned after arresting drink drivers in Warwickshire following the nationwide shut down of pubs.

Ten people were arrested over the weekend on drink driving offences after Boris Johnson announced the closure of pubs and restaurants across the UK on Friday.

Two people were also arrested for drug drive offences.

Insp Jem Mountford said: “Drink driving wrecks lives and just because the pubs are shut this does not mean that we’re not out there actively looking for offenders.”
