A 'DRUG driver' was arrested after testing positive for cannabis on the roadside last night, according to police.

Traffic officers were conducting routine patrols on Belmont Road, Bolton, on September 3, when they spotted a silver VW Golf travelling at 40mph in a built-up area.

After stopping the motorist, police then administered a drug test on him. He failed, testing positive for cannabis - and he was later arrested.

A Greater Manchester Traffic spokesperson said: "XT64 was out conducting speed enforcement on Belmont Road, Bolton. The driver of a VW Golf was stopped, having been recorded at 40mph in a 30mph zone.

"He then failed a drugs test, testing positive for cannabis - and was arrested."
