A motorist was arrested on suspicion of drug-driving.

Police arrested the driver following a "minor traffic offence" on the A146 at Worlingham last week.

Officers from Lowestoft Police said they had stopped a vehicle and the driver then gave a positive drug-wipe.

Police can stop a driver who they think is on drugs, after which they can use a roadside drugs kit to carry out a test on the motorist and screen for cannabis and cocaine.

A post on the Lowestoft Police Facebook page said: "Positive Drug Drive last week on the A146 #Worlingham after a minor traffic offence.
