Police have criticised another driver for causing delays in Derby after running out of fuel.

Officers pulled up on the A52 westbound near the Wyvern next to a motorist whose tank had run empty.

However, when, the driver was given a roadside breath test, the equipment registered a result of 77 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.

Officers from the Derbyshire police's roads team said the driver was taken into custody.

Police tweeted a picture of the queues behind a driver they stopped on the A52 in Derby.
