Members of the public called police because they were so concerned by a Queenstown woman allegedly hitting her children.

Senior Constable Chris Blackford, of Queenstown, said police spoke to the 39-year-old woman at 4pm on Wednesday after she parked in Church St with children in the car.

She was interviewed and inquiries continued, he said.

"It was serious enough to warrant public intervention."

Meanwhile, at 5am yesterday a 26-year-old French man was spotted driving erratically on Lake Esplanade, stopped and processed for drink-driving.

He blew 723mcg, his licence was suspended for 28 days and he was bailed to appear in the Queenstown District Court.
