A motorist tested positive for cocaine after they were stopped by Suffolk police - and the driver is also alleged to have entered the country illegally.

Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team said on Twitter officers in the Stowmarket area stopped a black Ford, which has been linked to the supply of drugs.

Officers then stopped the vehicle and seized a haul of class A drugs, believed to be cocaine, with the assistance of police dog units.

NSRAPT then said the driver produced a positive test for cocaine and arrested them on suspicion of entering the country illegally.
