A drunk driver who was caught by Rural Cambridgeshire policing teams has been banned for three years.

Irmanges Gedminas, Leicester was caught drunk driving and blew a huge 126 on a breathalyser test, almost triple the legal limit.

He was found asleep at the wheel while the car was still in gear and running - after it had been seen swerving over the A14.

Cambridgeshire Police said they were alerted after the car was seen "swerving all over the A14 near Spaldwick, Huntingdonshire, before stopping on the verge".

The legal alcohol limit is only 35 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. 

When he was caught in Leighton Bromswold, there was a bottle of alcohol in the footwell on the drivers side.

He was arrested and sentenced to 8 weeks in prison, given £233 in fines, a 15 day rehabilitation requirement, 150 hours unpaid work, 120 day alcohol abstinence and a 3 year driving ban.
