POLICE have charged 30 people with drink-drive related offences as part of the Countdown to Christmas campaign.
The latest arrests include a 75-year-old man and a 59-year-old woman, both from the New Forest, a man in his 40s, four people in their 30s and four in their 20s.
The campaign started on December 1 and will run until after the New Year.
The Daily Echo has teamed up with Dorset Police to name and shame those charged with such offences during December.
Dorset Police has warned drivers that increased traffic patrols and roadside checks will continue throughout the campaign. Anyone involved in an accident will be breathalysed.
Members of the public have also been urged to call 999 if they suspect someone is driving under the influence of alcohol, giving details of the vehicle.
