A driver who was stopped for having no insurance was later found to be in possession of a class B drug, police have revealed.

The driver of a silver Seat Ibiza was pulled over by officers at the Shell Auto Pitstop garage on Wednesday, October 2 after the car was flagged for no insurance.

A later inspection of the vehicle by officers found the driver to be in possession of some cannabis, a class B drug which can lead up to five years in prison.
