A man who crashed into an Alveston pub has been charged with drink driving.

Thornbury resident Chad Hicks crashed his van into the Ship Inn at around 3am on Saturday, October 20.

The Chef & Brewer pub sustained major damage in the crash, with the bar area closed off whilst repairs are made.

Pipework was also damaged as a result of the incident, but the listed building has remained open for business.

Manager Emma Lawrence said: "We are definitely still open although there is a quite a substantial bit of damage.

"Thankfully no one was injured."

The 33-year-old is on police bail pending an appearance before Bristol Magistrates Court on 29 November.
