A Nidderdale man has been arrested after drunkenly crashing into a parked car in Scotton on Sunday, July 31.

The man, in his 20s, was driving down Nidd View at around 5.45am when he lost control of his Hyundai and smashed into a parked car.

Both the Hyundai and the parked Volkswagen Golfwere left with extensive damage after the crash. The man was later arrested by officers after blowing nearly twice the legal limit.

He has been charged with drink driving and driving without due care and attention and is due to appear in Harrogate Magistrates this month.
