A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug, dangerous driving, driving without a licence or insurance, drug-driving and possession of an offensive weapon.

Inspector Declan Bourne, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The response officers on duty should be commended for their determination to track down this suspect.

“They have then carried out exemplary searches of both the suspect and vehicle, which have allowed us to take drugs and an offensive weapon off the streets.

“It was another good example of our police teams working closely together to achieve a positive result.”
