"Busy weekend in Leyland with our officers dealing with a variety of incidents, and this photograph shows the outcome from a female arrested and charged for driving over the prescribed limit with alcohol at Leyland Train Station," Sgt Atkinson said.

"Great teamworking by Lancashire police, British Transport Police and Lancashire Fire and rescue service to ensure the vehicle and location was made safe.

"Although we want our communities to enjoy the good weather we do want people to be safe and cannot stress enough the importance of not using a vehicle when you are intoxicated or planning your outings by using taxis if you want to drink."
