Boozed driver in windowless, seatless car arrested near Stratford Anzac service

A man who drove a car with no windows, lights or passenger seats has been charged with drink-driving after he allegedly drove through a road closure near an Anzac Day service in Stratford, Taranaki.

Police said he was driving slowly along Miranda St at around 6:20am, which had been closed off for an Anzac service.

He will be charged with drink driving offences and will appear in court at a later date.

Security is tight at Anzac services this year as the national terror threat level sits at medium after the Christchurch terror attack.

A number of services were cancelled to ensure a substantial police presence at each one.
