Police gave a dog a lift home - after its owner failed a roadside drug test.

Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk roads and armed policing team pulled the man over last night.

He was arrested after a drug wipe came back positive for cannabis and his car was seized.

Police took pity on his pet. One tweeted: "My Daddy said he was going to take me out for a drive but he didn't tell me he had smoked cannabis earlier. We got stopped by the feds and he got arrested and they seized our car. Still I did get a drive, the Sergeant drove me home. Thank you."
