A suspected drink driver called police to report himself to officers.

North Yorkshire Police said it received a call just before 12pm today (Monday, February 12) from a man who said he was "drink driving" and "didn't know what he is doing".

"A roadside breath test was carried out and the driver blew 118 at the side of the road, the legal limit is 35."
