A MAN has been arrested after driving his car into a field.

The Citroen Berlingo car lost control on Platt Lane, Westhoughton on Sunday evening.

Nobody was believed to be hurt but police were called after the car ended up in a farmer’s field.

The driver was given a roadside breath test and provided a reading of 76mg/100ml of breath - more than double the drink drive limit.
