A man from London who was picking up his brother from prison was stopped by the police today.

The vehicle had no insurance and the passenger was caught smoking cannabis – an illegal class B drug.

Weymouth & Portland Police officers seized the car, reported the occupants and left them to make their own way back to London.

Lesson of the day – if you are going to pick your brother up from prison, make sure you’ve got insurance and one of your passengers isn’t smoking cannabis.
