Ipswich – Man charged with drink-driving following collision

An Ipswich man will appear before magistrates next month, accused of driving whilst more than three times the legal limit following a collision in the town.

The incident occurred at 9pm last night, Wednesday 1 December, in London Road at the junction with Ranelagh Road. 

A Ford Focus collided with a Seat Leon which was stationary at the traffic lights, which in turn collided with a police car. 

Another police unit was called to the scene and the driver of the Ford Focus was subsequently arrested on suspicion of drink-driving after failing a roadside breath test and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre. 

Raymond Danes, aged 22 and of Pownall Road, has been charged with driving with excess alcohol for providing a breath sample of 110 micrograms in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35mg in 100ml of breath. 

Danes has been bailed to appear before Ipswich Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 4 January.
