SEVEN people have been charged with drink driving offences during the first week of Dorset Police’s summer campaign.

The motorists are due to appear at courts in Poole and Weymouth this month.

The campaign started on June 1 and runs until July 16 tp coincide with the World Cup.

Throughout the operation, officers will be requesting breath tests from all drivers involved in road traffic collisions, irrespective of whether or not they suspect a drink driving offence.

Motorists can also expect to be tested during routine stop checks and if they are stopped for any other driving offence.

As in previous campaigns, anyone charged with a drink driving related offence during the campaign will have their name and court appearance details published.

Anyone who suspects someone of drink driving should call the police immediately on 999 with the vehicle registration number and direction of travel.
