Police Constable Ken Tinley, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are working hard to deny criminals the use of our road network and have a lot of information about vehicles and individuals we suspect to be involved in the supply of drugs.

“When we have reason to so do we will stop them, search them and bring them into custody. This was another good result that took a significant quantity of drugs off the streets and helped to make our city safer.”
