A MAN is due to appear in court next month after he was charged with drink-driving in Colchester.

Peter Cole was driving a beige Kia Sedona when he lost control of the car on Osborne Street and struck the window of an Indian restaurant shortly before 4.30am today.

Cole was arrested at the scene and later charged with one count driving while under the influence of alcohol.

The 40-year-old scaffolder from Northumberland is currently on police bail prior to his appearance at Colchester Magistrates Court on Tuesday, July 15.
