They tweeted: "A vehicle caught our attention in #Crawley due to his manner of driving.

"The reason became apparent very quickly! One in custody at 13:00hrs with levels like this, Frightening! The driver will be charged to court when sober.#RoadSafety #Fatal5 #Proactive #Unacceptable #EA017"

There are strict alcohol limits for drivers, but it’s impossible to say exactly how many drinks this equals - it’s different for each person.

Level of alcohol for England, Wales and Northern Ireland are:

Micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath 35

Milligrammes per 100 millilitres of blood 80

Milligrammes per 100 millilitres of urine 107
