ELEVEN people have been charged with drink driving following a police operation in the North East at the weekend.

Three motorists from Moray are amongst the seven men and four women who were arrested.

The drivers were stopped as part of Operation CEDAR (Challenge, Educate, Detect and Reduce). 

Sergeant Stuart Lawrence said: "Road safety is a complex area.

"We spend a considerable amount of time making sense of why collisions occur and identifying any areas where we can take steps to prevent and reduce future incidents.  

"Therefore, it is always extremely disappointing when drivers are found to be committing completely avoidable offences which put both themselves and innocent members of the public at risk."

Anyone with concerns about potential drink driving offences can contact Police on 101.
