A motorcyclist who had taken drugs blamed wet roads for falling off the bike.

A unit with Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team (NSRAPT) stopped a motorbike with no brake light in Lowestoft on Friday night (August 9).

Investigation established the rider had fallen off the bike moments before.

The motorcyclist blamed the wet roads but tested positively for both cannabis and cocaine.

The officer tweeted: "Rider blamed wet road, call me cynical but the positive drug wipe for cannabis and cocaine might have something to do with it as well."
