FOUR motorists were caught speeding or driving under the influence in Denbigh, Ruthin and Corwen on the weekend during the police's campaign to clamp down on dangerous road users.

North Wales Police said it caught the car drivers as part of Operation Darwen, in which officers carry out high visibility patrols on key routes identified high at risk of speeding.

A car driver travelling at 103mph was caught on the A494 in Nant Clwyd, near Ruthin. Police seized the car after the driver was found without insurance.

Another driver was caught travelling at 85mph on the notorious EVO Triangle, near Corwen.

Meanwhile, drink and drug drive arrests were carried out in Corwen and Denbigh.

Supt Jane Banham, head of specialist operations at North Wales Police, has said Operation Darwen aims to "campaign and target, with a view to prosecution, all those that ride or drive dangerously".

Eight more speeding and drink and drug driving arrests were carried out by police across North Wales over the weekend.
