Lucky escape for teen drink-driver
THIS picture released by Gloucestershire police is a stark reminder of the dangers of drinking and driving.
Tewkesbury-based officers published it on their Twitter website.
They said nobody was hurt in the incident, in the town's East Street, just before Christmas.
But they warned that other drivers might not be so lucky if they drank and drove.

Yesterday, the force said that a 19-year-old man driving the Mini Cooper was involved in a collision with a Volkswagen Polo.
The road was partially blocked after the Mini overturned. Its driver was arrested and later charged with drink-driving. He will appear at Stroud Magistrates' Court on January 28.
Police arrested 69 drink-drivers in Gloucestershire between December 1 and January 1, two more than during the same period last year.
