Man arrested for driving under the influence of drugs during lockdown in Sabden

A man caught stinking of cannabis while driving his car around Sabden has been arrested.

Ribble Valley Police detained the offender in Whalley Road yesterday afternoon (Monday).

A spokesman for the police said: "Male driver arrested this afternoon for driving whilst under the influence of drugs. Tour-de-Sabden during lockdown whilst reeking of cannabis wasn't a good idea. Maybe he should have stayed at home eating Easter eggs and not risked having an accident or injuring someone."
