Increased patrols and checks on motorists are being promised this month by Northants Police.

Their summer campaign to detect drink-drivers follows increased measures in the run up to last Christmas.

As then, people charged with drink and drug driving offences will have their name and charge outlined on the force's website.

The fire service, Northants Highways and the county council are backing the campaign under the umbrella of the Northants Safer Roads Alliance.

A senior officer said police were "all too familiar" with the consequences of drink driving including fatal collisions.

The first five people to be named this month by the force includes a Corby resident.
