A man was arrested for being nearly three times the drink-drive limit in the early hours today.

A spokesman for Norfolk Special Constabulary said he was arrested while they were carrying out a routine patrol in North Walsham at about 3.15am.

It was a busy night for the specials who had earlier helped ther colleagues as the annual Cromer Carnival wound down for another year.

Norfolk Specials tweeted: 'Great #teamworking tonight & early this morning - @CromerCarnival fancy dress, then after attending an rtc - one arrested for excess alcohol, no ins & no mot. Late finish but worth the effort #couldyou #7910.'
