The man initially walked away before being arrested, officers said.

He is now awaiting questioning in Preston.

Sharing a picture of the car, a spokesperson for Ribble Valley Police said: “At 11 o’clock last night a 26-year-old male from Bolton was arrested for driving whilst unfit through drink or drugs in Billington.
