Drink-driver crashes in to Biggleswade giraffe sculpture

A motorist has been arrested for drink-driving after ploughing a car into a giraffe sculpture.

The crash happened in Biggleswade in Bedfordshire at 20:00 BST on Saturday.

A test revealed the driver had 59 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, the limit being 35 microgrammes, police said.

Police tweeted: "It quite clearly says 'Please keep off the display', but I guess when you've been drink driving you don't always notice the signs."
