'SHOCKING' footage was released of a driver under the influence of alcohol driving erratically on the A417.

The incident happened on Monday, November 14 this year when the driver was travelling home from work, but was actually travelling in the opposite direction of their home address.

In the footage, a dark blue car can be seen travelling towards NettletonBottom at around 4pm, swerving towards the central reservation on a number of occasions.

The vehicle was found at a junction where the 41-year-old driver failed to provide a specimen of breath.

The driver was disqualified from driving for 20 months, fined £274 and ordered to have treatment for alcohol dependency for six months.
