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.

Not only can possession of cannabis lead to up to five years in prison, it can also lead to an unlimited fine or sometimes both.

Those in supply or production of cannabis could face up to 14 years in prison or the unlimited fine. Some people can also be handed both.
