A MAN has been charged with drink driving, after being spotted on CCTV.

Two men were spotted on camera on Monday (August 10), appearing to be abusive to members of the public in Scarborough.

When approached by North Yorkshire Police officers, the men then directed their abusive comments to the officers, and were behaving in a way which led police to believe they were under the influence of alcohol.

Later on in the evening, CCTV picked up the men returning to their car on the seafront before driving away from the town.

Roads policing officers were alerted to the vehicle, which was then spotted driving on the A64 towards York.

Officers stopped the vehicle and carried out a roadside breath test, which showed the driver, a 33 year-old man from Leeds, to be over the legal limit.

He was arrested and taken into police custody before being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

He's due to appear at York Magistrates Court next month.
