Eight people have been disqualified from driving this week after being caught drink driving in the county.

Police are working hard to tackle the issue across Cambridgeshire as part of their annual crackdown and are asking drivers to rethink getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.

Those caught were:

Drink driving not only endangers the life of the driver, but also other road users around them. The legal limit is 35 but we recommend staying at zero.
