Officers from Stafford Borough Police were called to Stone around 9.15pm last night after reports of a car hitting railings in the High Street outside Lloyds bank.

A white Mazda was later stopped on Whitemill Lane with severe damage to its front end.

A 29-year-old man from the Stone area was arrested on suspicion of driving while above the legal alcohol limit and failing to stop when requested by an officer.

He remains in police custody while inquiries continue.

"This follows a road traffic collision.

"We have arrested a male in connection with this and he remains in police custody.

"Further updates will be given in due course."
