Police have arrested a man on suspicion of drink driving after he crashed his car into a sign – then hid from officers behind a wall.

The 32-year-old lost control of his red Volvo at Pickery Corner, on the A6, around 1am on Tuesday, April 16.

When police arrived at the scene of the crash, the car was empty but officers quickly discovered the man behind a dry-stone wall with the keys in his pocket.
