A man caught stinking of cannabis while driving his car around a village during lockdown has been arrested.

Ribble Valley police detained the man in Whalley Road, Sabden on Sunday afternoon, for driving while under the influence of drugs.

A spokesperson 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."
