Cumbria police launch summer drink drive campaign

Police have launched their annual summer drink drive crackdown.

The force is expecting bars to be packed with people watching the World Cup and has urged football fans not to get behind the wheel after cheering England on with a drink.

Appleby Horse Fair is also being held in the days leading up to the start of the football extravaganza and police expect “a large number of people” will be out during June.

Sergeant Paul Brown said: “A person under the influence of alcohol cannot control a vehicle responsibly and safely.
“Drinking alcohol can severely impact reaction time as well as impair your co-ordination.”
