The driver was arrested for being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

South Yorkshire Police said: “As satisfying as it is to know we have disrupted supply on this occasion, we are well aware that this is part of a much bigger picture and we are working hard to address the issue and the impacts it has on our community.
“So, our words of warning are as follows. Dealers - we are coming for you; users - buying from these people is criminal and we will deal appropriately with anyone found to be in possession. You are helping to fund more serious criminality. “You really don't know where your drugs have been before they get to you.”
