More drivers from South Holland have been involved in crashes after drinking booze or using drugs than anywhere else in Lincolnshire, shocking new figures reveal.

Over the period 2012-2016, the number of people from South Holland who were either at the wheel or casualties in crashes was more than double the national average and over 15 per cent above the level for Lincolnshire’s other six districts.
