CCTV footage of a serious road crash involving a suspected drink driver has been released to highlight the impact of dangerous driving.

PSNI Bangor posted the footage of a car crashing through a trolley dock in a supermarket car park in Co Down on Monday afternoon.

"We are not doing this to shock people or make you scared of the roads but to hopefully let you see places where you may well travel and have everyone give a little bit of extra thought when they are out and about," read the Facebook post.

"This piece of footage is from Bangor and involves a suspected drink driver."

Members of the PSNI C District said that they have "some very good figures in regards to crime but one area we definitely could improve on is in the number of serious road traffic collisions we attend and deal with".

"I suppose telling everyone the figures is one thing but as a community we really need to see some of the direct impact of traffic collisions.

"We will continue to do our bit by carrying out speed checks, random breath testing, seizing uninsured vehicles and detecting drunk drivers but the safety of our roads is a collective responsibility.

"Take care and drive safely."
