A spokesman for Sheffield Central & North West Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “I think we’d all agree that drink driving is a stupid thing to do, even more so if you choose to do it in a bright yellow digger, then go through a red light, all in front of a police car.

“Driver to be charged when sober.”

The vehicle was stopped in the Hillsborough area on the in bound carriageway of the A61.
