The male driver also had no valid insurance or licence, having recently finished a period of disqualification.

The pair were stopped on the A5 near Wellington on Thursday afternoon.

After he was tested for the presence of cannabis, the driver was arrested on suspicion of driving while over the drug limit.

Meanwhile the truck was seized and towed away.
