A Chigwell woman has been charged in connection with Essex Police’s Summer Anti-Drink and Drug Driving campaign at the weekend.
Janine Chinery of Limes Avenue, Chigwell, is due to appear at Basildon Magistrates’ Court on July 12, charged with failing to provide a breath specimen for analysis when asked to do so by officers.
The 31-year-old was arrested at Cranes Farm Road, Basildon, just before 2am yesterday (Sunday).
A total of 34 people - 29 men and five women - were arrested at the weekend on suspicion of drink or drug related offences.
