A male has been taken into custody after he was allegedly found drunk and in-charge of a lorry which weighs 44 tonnes.

Police were made aware of the alleged drink-driver after being alerted by a passer-by on the roads on Christmas Day.

The Norfolk and Suffolk's Roads and Armed Policing team tweeted about the arrest at 6.21pm.

The tweet read: "Male arrested for being drunk and in-charge of his 44tonne lorry following a call from a member of public.

"Male currently in custody waiting for an interview after providing an evidential breath specimen of 72ugs."
