Police say two men were arrested for drink and drug driving in Denbighshire over the weekend.

A 54 year-old man was charged with drink driving after he tested positive in St Asaph on Saturday – he will appear before magistrates in Llandudno on Monday 20th February.

Meanwhile, a 30 year-old was arrested and bailed after testing positive for cocaine at the roadside on the A525 in Rhyl – officers are still awaiting the results of further tests.

Elsewhere in North Wales, two men, aged 44 and 55, were charged with drink driving in the Wrexham and Trelawnyd areas – while a 20 year-old man was bailed after testing positive for cocaine in Holywell.

On Sunday, a 49 year-old man was arrested and bailed after failing to provide a breath test in Llandygai near Bangor, while a 68 year-old man tested positive in Beaumaris. Another man, aged 42, tested positive for cannabis on the A55 near Llangefni and was arrested and bailed.

Sergeant Tony Gatley from the Roads Policing Unit in Colwyn Bay said: ”Only a few days after we released the results from our Christmas campaign, once again, we are having to issue a warning to people regarding the dangers of drink and drug driving. Driving with excess alcohol or under the influence of drugs is not just a criminal offence but also completely unacceptable. North Wales Police will continue to target those breaking the law as part of daily policing.”

Anyone with information about driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anoymously on 0800 555 111 or in an emergency, by dialing 999.
