A 24-year-old man has been charged with failing to provide the police with a specimen for analysis after a car collided with a pylon in Baldock.

Barrington Williams, who lives in Bittern Way in Letchworth, has been charged in relation to the incident which saw a green Audi A4 smash into a pylon in North Road at about 2.30am on Monday.

Mr Williams has been bailed and is due to appear at North and East Herts Magistrates’ Court on January 25.
