CASH DASH: Police at the scene of this morning's incident in High Row

A MAN was arrested after apparently driving through a no entry sign in a pedestrianised area during a bungled effort to reach a high street cash machine.

CCTV cameras picked up the 60-year-old carrying out the unusual manoeuvre in High Row, Darlington, on Friday (April 4) morning.

Officers were sent to the scene and the man was arrested on suspicion of driving while unfit through alcohol or drugs.

The man appears to have reversed his black Ford Ford Fiesta on to High Row at the junction with Bondgate.

It is understood he was trying to use the cash dispenser at the Santander bank.

No one in the bank saw the incident.

Inspector Chris Knox, of Darlington police, said: “CCTV monitored a vehicle driving between bollards in a pedestrianised area.

“The vehicle was stopped in High Row and the driver displayed strange behaviour.

“We have got a 60-year-old man from the Darlington area in custody.”
