A man has been charged with drugs offences following a police stop check on the M56.

At around 12.50pm on Friday 19 May, officers from the Roads and Crime Unit stopped a white Nissan Navara on the M56 near to junction 10.

Following a search of the car, the driver, Robert Prior, of Park Lane, Portsmouth, was arrested on suspicion of drugs offences.

He was remanded in custody and is next set to appear at Chester Crown Court on Friday 19 June.
