Police stop 100 drivers at Portsmouth port
AN OPERATION targeting foreign drivers caught someone over the drink-drive limit.
Roads policing officers were at Portsmouth International Port yesterday.
A Hampshire police spokesman said 100 lorry drivers had been spoken to as they arrived from Caen.
‘One failed a breath test,’ the spokesman said.
‘That person also had an offensive weapon on his belt, he had a lock knife.’
Another person found was wanted for a GBH assault in another area, police said.
The work, called Operation Trivium, is a European-wide project aiming to tackle criminals wherever they commit the crime.
Tipsol, the European Traffic Police Network, said on its website: ‘Borders are no barriers to justice, with these wide-ranging operations bringing together police forces across Europe.’
