How one mistake can last a lifetime in West Norfolk.

All week we've been looking at the different areas of drink driving as part of our campaign this winter.

That's ranged from making that choice to get behind the wheel over the limit to the moment of the crash itself.

But today (7th Dec) we're hearing about the worst part of drink driving.

The long-term consequences that never leave victims, their families and the emergency services.

PC Gary Morris works for Norfolk Police in King's Lynn and has joined KLFM's Drink Drive Campaign.

 

He told KLFM:

"When you go home, when you leave the job the memories don't leave them.

"You can't shut them in your locker as you leave the building.

"It's devastating for all sorts of people - the family, friends and even survivors of the collisions.

"They have to live with the knowledge of what's happened - it's incredibly tough and difficult for everyone."
