A MAN has been arrested after officers saw a vehicle nearly crash before they were stopped and found to be drink driving in the early hours of today.

Lancashire Police were patrolling the A59 towards the M6 near Samlesbury when they witnessed two vehicles almost collide at around 2.16am.

The at-fault vehicle, a grey Ford Focus, was pulled over and its driver was seen to be 'unsteady' on their feet.

Police said the driver had to be helped from their car into the police vehicle "due to their unsteadiness".

Unsurprisingly, the driver was subsequently arrested on drink-drive offences.
