A motorist told police he smokes cannabis every day after being arrested for drug driving.

His vehicle was stopped by officers of the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team in Bury St Edmunds on the afternoon of Thursday January 3.

Police pulled the driver over due to the manner in which he was driving and as the vehicle had a broken light.

The driver told officers he smoked the class B drug everyday. He then provided a positive drugs wipe and was arrested.

Earlier in the day a learner driver on a motorbike was stopped in Ipswich and arrested after also testing positive for cannabis.
