Police issued a plea to drivers after a "drunk girlfriend" recklessly smashed a car into a Tesco shopping trolley bay.

Police were called to a supermarket in Cricklewood around 3am on Friday after the black Nissan GT-R smashed into a street light and demolished the trolley shelter.

Barnet Met Police Service wrote on Twitter: "Please don’t let your drunk girlfriend drive a car dangerously around a Tesco car park for fun when she has no licence/insurance.

"Otherwise when she crashes, police will attend and arrest her. They will also arrest you when it transpires there is a warrant for your arrest."

PC Moulden, the officer who attended the scene, arrested one female for drink driving and other driving offences.

A male, who had a warrant out for his arrest, was also taken to a north London police station.

Police gave no further details on the male's warrant.

Nobody else was involved or injured in the collision.
