Operation Blackwater - a summer drink drive campaign is been carried out by Lincolnshire Police.

From June 1, the Lincolnshire police have been conducting an intelligence led operation to identify drink drivers.

Members of the public are encouraged to report habitual drink drivers by texting the word “DRINK” to 80800, followed by details of the vehicle and when and where it will occur.

If a member of the public knows of someone who is imminently going to drink drive, they are advised to dial 999.

Highly visible and well signed road checks will also be in operation across the County.

Checks will be carried out in early morning, evening and night time.

The number of people charged so far in June with drink driving offences totals 22 drivers.
