An alleged "beginner" drug dealer has been arrested after he was stopped on the M54 in Telford with a "starter pack" of illegal substances, say police.

The driver, who had cocaine, cannabis and a burner phone, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and taken to custody after his arrest last night.

He also failed a roadside drug test carried out by police.

Operational Patrol Unit Shropshire said: "Intelligence led stop on a vehicle on the M54 in Telford. The driver was just beginning his career as a drug dealer and we found him in possession of a 'starter pack'.

"He was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent. Now in the cells reconsidering his career choices."

They added: "Looks like the driver may have been sampling his own goods too as he failed a roadside drug test.

"If the blood results come back over the specified limit, he'll be disqualified for a minimum of 12 months too."
