THE latest film in a campaign tackling drink-driving this Christmas has been released by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police.

Four films have been made, with the support of a family whose daughter was killed after she crashed into a van whilst she was four times over the drink-drive limit.

The films focus on how the accident affected those involved. In the first two films, released this week, a police officer and paramedic have spoken of their experiences.

In the latest film, released today (Thursday), Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service watch manager Craig Gregory has spoken of the harrowing experience of dealing with fatal accidents.

The final film is due to be released tomorrow (Friday).

Drink-drivers can be reported by text using 80999 or by phoning 999.
