A man suspected of drink-driving has tried to escape police by hiding in a nativity scene. After crashing his Mini Cooper through the metal barriers of the A659, just outside of Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, the man attempted to hide from police in a large shed housing a nativity scene.
North Yorkshire Police confirmed they were able to locate the suspect, who was found hiding in the hay of a nativity scene, before posting a photo of the crash on Twitter.
The Department for Transport has recently release a ‘Think!’ campaign targeting those who are likely to drive after a few drinks. Research has shown that one in ten people would consider drink-driving.
