A MAN was arrested in Rhyl town centre on suspicion of drug-driving yesterday (June 9) after a vehicle was stopped by officers.

The man was also arrested at the scene for driving while disqualified and having no insurance.

Having tested positive for cannabis on the roadside, he was taken to custody, where blood tests were carried out.
