The Ford Fiesta rolled along Talavera Way before coming to rest sideways and upside down at around 3.15am.

The driver was taken to Northampton General Hospital but officers from the Northamptonshire Police Armed Response Vehicles squad, who attended the crash, said it was "amazing he was not seriously injured."

A spokesman for the Force later revealed a 21-year-old man arrested on suspicion of drink-driving was later released pending further investigation.
