Ex-Minder actress Rula Lenska charged with drink-driving

Former EastEnders and Minder actress Rula Lenska has been charged with drink-driving.

The 68-year-old, who has also appeared in Coronation Street, is alleged to have struck a parked car in Twickenham, west London, at just after 7pm on Monday.

Lenska's Mini Cooper is believed to have rolled on to its side in the middle of Hospital Bridge Road - she was arrested and charged with a drink-drive offence by the Metropolitan Police.

A police spokesman confirmed the actress, of Hazeldene Road, was charged with "driving a motor vehicle above the legal limit".

The London Ambulance Service also attended the incident but due to "patient confidentiality" would not confirm if anyone was treated at the scene or taken to hospital.

Lenska, who has also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, famously with George Galloway when he pretended to be a cat, was unavailable for comment.

The actress will appear on bail at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on March 10.
