A Sheffield woman who was driving a car which reeked of cannabis was found to be three and a half times the legal limit.

On July 24, a student officer stopped a vehicle on Sicey Avenue in Shiregreen which smelled heavily of cannabis.

The female driver was given a 'drug wipe', tested positive and was arrested for drug driving.

The blood sample she gave for further analysis has now come back showing she was three and a half times the legal limit for cannabis and will be reported on a summons.

A statement on the police's Facebook page said: "It’s simple, if you drug drive you are risking people's safety. "

"We will test you if we suspect drug driving and guess what, if you refuse the test, you get arrested.
