Two more men have been charged with drink driving as part of the Lincolnshire Police crackdown over the festive period.

Ryits Martinkenas, 25, of Sunningdale Drive, Boston, was arrested on Lister Way in the town and will appear before Boston Magistrates’ Court on January 10.

Andrew Harding, 54, of Copperleaf Close, Northampton, was arrested in Deeping St Nicholas and will appear in court on January 17.

Both were arrested and charged on December 19.

Lincolnshire Police will release the identities of anyone charged with being under the influence of drink or drugs, before their case has been heard in court between December 18 and into the New Year.

Inspector Ewan Gell from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Drink driving is still a problem in Lincolnshire but we are very good at catching offenders. I sincerely hope we don’t have to name a single person over these two weeks.

“Driving under the influence can be deadly, claims and ruins lives but is easily avoidable.

“Do not consume a drop if you are driving and be wary the morning after as you could still be over the limit.

“If we pull you over the consequences could be a losing your licence, a criminal record or even a prison sentence.”
