Man charged with drink driving on A360.

A man has been charged with drink driving after officers stopped a vehicle in Shrewton.

Officers received a report regarding how a Ford Fiesta was being driven along the A360 at around 5 pm on Monday.

Simon Byers, 54, of Osmund Walk, Old Sarum, was arrested and later charged with drink driving. He is due to appear at Salisbury Magistrates Court on September 1.

A police spokesperson said, “Drink driving is one of the ‘fatal five’ – the five main contributory factors that cause serious road traffic collisions.

“Road users who commit one of the fatal five offences are far more likely to be involved in a fatal collision than those who do not. This month, we are running a campaign to raise awareness of the fatal five following a rise in the number of serious and fatal collisions in Wiltshire.”
