A DRIVER suspected of being under the influence of drink or drugs was arrested after fleeing the scene of a crash.

The 36-year-old drove off after the incident in East Dene last Thursday but was caught by pursuing officers, a police spokeswoman said.

She added: "Police were called at 11.20am to reports of a collision between a car and a parked van on Western Road.

"The car failed to stop and left the scene.

"Officers attended and located the vehicle. One man was arrested on suspicion of being over the prescribed limit of drink or drugs."

“He has since been bailed and enquiries are ongoing.”
