Drink-driver hides from police in Christmas nativity scene
A flurry of comments emerged online after a motorist crashed his car and sought refuge in a nativity.

The motorist attempted to hide from officers in a nativity scene 200 metres from where he had crashed his MINI Cooper.

North Yorkshire Police soon located the suspect and tweeted: “Driver runs from RTC in #tadcaster & tries to hide in nativity display. Located & arrested #overthelimitunderarrest.”

The amusing incident sparked a flurry of further tweets.

It comes after more than 700,000 motorists admitted that they will be over the drink-drive limit this Christmas when they take to the roads.

One in five said they’d driven over the limit before and 18 per cent boasted: “Alcohol doesn’t affect me”, the Co-op Insurance poll also revealed.
