A man has had his international drivers licence suspended after being caught high range drink driving over the weekend.

Police were speaking to the 37-year-old outside a venue in Hamilton on Saturday night before issuing him a move-on direction.

The same man was found minutes later to be driving westbound on Tudor Street before turning into Beaumont Street, contrary to a red arrow.

Police stopped the vehicle and submitted the driver to a breath test which returned a reading of 0.201.

The man will face Newcastle local court in July.
