Police arrested a Midhurst man on suspicion of drink driving last night after following the gouges left by a missing front tyre.

The 52-year-old was taken into custody after police traced an Audi A5 involved in a collision to a local address, police confirmed.

A police spokesman said the grey Audi A5 collided with a parked vehicle at Bepton shortly before 11pm.

The Audi lost a tyre and was traced to an address at around midnight, the spokesman added. No injuries were reported.
