A suspected drink-driver has been arrested after police attended reports of ‘nuisance’ vehicles around a Staffordshire Moorlands tunnel.

“One vehicle has been stopped and the driver arrested for suspected drink driving and is on the way to custody.”
A Section 59 warning sign is in place at the tunnel warning anti-social drivers that their vehicle may be seized if their driving is aggressive or unsafe and if the noise is a causing nuisance such as revving engines and loud stereos.
