A MOTORIST who drove with drugs in his system has been banned from driving.

Michael Shaw was charged with drug driving after he was found to have had a cannabis breakdown product in his blood while driving on the A590.

South Cumbria Magistrates' Court heard Shaw was driving a silver Ford Focus on the road near Witherslack on January 14.

The 42-year-old Barrow man pleaded guilty to the offence when he appeared before the court.

Magistrates sentenced him to a £120 fine and banned him from getting behind the wheel of a car for 12 months.

Shaw, of Albert Street, was also a £48 victim surcharge and £85 in costs.
