They were called to the scene in Maghera on Monday evening where they found the driver of the car being helped out by witnesses.

The driver is now awaiting a court date after being arrested and later blowing a reading of 125 mg for alcohol in breath in custody, with the legal limit being 35 mg.

Posting on Facebook, a police officer said: "Needless to say it was extremely fortunate no one was injured in this incident.

"This was a built up area with young children playing close by. You can only imagine what could have happened."
