The number of failed drink or drug tests during the campaign was a 25 per cent increase on last year's figures and included two on Christmas Day and eight on New Year's Day.

But that spike resulted from a huge increase in the number of roadside tests. In all police carried out 2,590 tests, an increase of 42 per cent on the 1,818 from 12 months earlier.

As part of the campaign, all those charged were publicly named by Northamptonshire Police.
