Builders take drunken ride in bulldozer

Two Polish builders left a trail of destruction when they drove to a store in a digger truck after running out of booze on the building site.

Marek Cowalski, 27 and Tomasz Dzwonicki, 19, plowed into parked cars, garden walls and fences and a set of traffic lights on their way to buy more drinks for a birthday binge on a building site in Glogow, south-west Poland.

Police detained the pair after they tried to pull into a parking spot and instead drove into the shop and got stuck.

The men were cut out of the dozer by firefighters and taken to jail. They face up to five years.
