A learner driver has been arrested on suspicion of drug driving after being stopped by police on the A55, North Wales.

The 26-year-old man from Anglesey is currently in custody after failing a roadside drug test near Bangor.

North Wales police officers seized the van the man was driving, and a passenger was also given a warning for possession of cannabis.

A police spokeswoman said: ‘A 26-year-old man from Anglesey has been arrested on suspicion of drug driving and remains in police custody after failing a roadside test.’

North Wales Police made their first drug driving arrest on March 5, just one day after new legislation came into force across England and Wales which set legal limits for how much of a substance – whether illegal drugs or prescription medication – drivers can have in their system.

Police have warned those found guilty will face a 12-month disqualification, a fine of up to £5000 or imprisonment.
