Three arrested and class A drugs recovered after dramatic police stop on the M5

THREE people were arrested and a large amount of class A drugs recovered when a car was forced to stop by police on the M5.

A TPAC manouevre was performed on the vehicle between Junction 7 and 8 as the driver tried to evade police at 90mph.

A TPAC sees officers tactically pull their vehicles alongside and in front of the suspect car, boxing it in and bringing it to a standstill.

Officers from Worcestershire Operational Policing Unit, the South Worcestershire Proactive CID team and Central Motorway Police Group were all involved in the stop which happened on Monday night.

The drugs were discovered hidden in the car.
