A driving instructor from Surrey has been arrested after they were seen driving 'appallingly' on the county's roads.

Surrey Police's Roads Policing team stopped the motorist yesterday (Thursday 5 October) when officers noticed their poor road manner.

Upon a roadside check, the motorist was found to be above the legal limit for alcohol.
