The number of motorists arrested for drink-driving the "morning after" has risen, police figures suggest.

It comes after insurers LV found that many motorists do not realise how long it takes for alcohol to leave the body.

Roger Singer is Head of Drink Driver Education a drug and alcohol road safety charity that runs training courses for people who have been caught breaking the law.
