"We approached a suspicious vehicle which was parked up in March Road, however the driver made off from us," said a police spokesman.

"But they didn't make it very far after a member of the public, allowing us to arrest a 37-year-old man from Chatteris.

"He tested positive for drugs at the road side and was arrested. He has since been bailed to return to the Police Investigation Centre at King's Lynn on November 5.

"Thank you again to the driver who helped us."
