A drunk driver has been arrested after crashing right outside a police station.
The motorist was detained during the early hours of Saturday (27 March) morning, having smashed through a railing by the entrance to Northwich Police Station in Cheshire, UK.
The driver was breathalysed and found to be over the drink drive limit.
Northwich Police sarcastically praised the offender for 'handing themselves in'.
On Twitter, the force said: "If you do drink and drive, please be so kind to hand yourselves in like this chap. The driver was arrested in the early hours and later provided two positive samples of breath."

Earlier this week, a man in the US was arrested after he collected a missing wallet containing drugs from a police station.
Jacob Peck, from Huntington, West Virginia, went to Milton Police Department after being informed that officers had found his wallet.
A sniffer dog subsequently led officers to illegal drugs inside the 24-year-old's truck, and after searching it police found more drugs and scales.
Peck was arrested and officers confiscated a quantity of heroin, heroin laced with fentanyl, and crystal meth.
