Checks on the driver revealed they were over the legal limit but also wanted on warrant by officers from South Yorkshire Police for harassment.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the current legal limit is 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood, 35 micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath, or 107 milligrams per 100 millilitres of urine – while limits differ in Scotland.
