A MAN has been arrested after crashing into a garden in Farnworth.

Officers were called to a house on Plodder Lane after a driver lost control of his car, careering into the front garden of a property.

The black Volkswagon smashed through the garden fence, coming to rest in the property hedge.

Officers arrested a man at the scene on suspicion of drug driving, after the man behind the wheel allegedly failed a roadside drug test.

Posting about the incident on their Twitter page, GMP Traffic said: "Driver arrested yesterday on Plodder Lane, Bolton after losing control.

"Driver failed roadside drug test. Might explain his parking."
