TWO North Yorkshire men have been arrested on suspicion of drug production after they were pulled over on the A64.

Officers stopped a silver Peugeot Expert van on the eastbound carriageway near Malton at just after 8pm on Tuesday, and could smell cannabis in the vehicle.

A search of the van found items which could be used in connection with the cultivation of cannabis, including bottles of liquid fertiliser.

The 23-year-old male driver, from Scarborough, and his 38-year-old passenger, also from Scarborough, were arrested, and police later searched an industrial unit at New Lane, Strensall, where they found about 50 cannabis plants in different stages of growth and other equipment.

Both men have since been released on bail.
