A driver has spent time on a ventilator at the Queen Elizabeth in King's Lynn for allegedly being too intoxicated whilst behind the wheel in Wisbech to be taken into police custody.

Fenland Police said on social media they have a duty of care to anyone who is ill, when asked by a member of the public why they weren't put in a cell.

Officers were called to a crash in Brancaster Court on Tuesday afternoon (31 March).

They added it could have taken a ventilator bed away from a patient with Covid-19
