A WOMAN was arrested and is due to appear in court after a crash in Penarth, in which an iconic location was damaged.

Photos show mangled fence panels next to that iconic entrance to popular Penarth green space Dingle Park.

It can now be revealed the reason for the damage was down to a suspected drink driver.
