A DRUG driver with cocaine and cannabis in his system was behind the wheel of a hired Rolls Royce Ghost near a Worcestershire prison.

Imran Khan admitted two charges of drug driving when he appeared before magistrates in Worcester on Thursday.

The 47-year-old was stopped behind the wheel of the Rolls Royce Ghost V12 in Shinehill Lane, close to HMP Long Lartin, near Evesham on January 26 this year.

Tests revealed he had 562 microgrammes of Benzoylecgonine (a metabolite of cocaine) and 4.7 microgrammes of Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (a metabolite of cannabis) per litre of his blood.

This is 10 times the limit for the cocaine metabolite (50 microgrammes) and more than twice the limit (2 microgrammes) for the cannabis metabolite.

Khan of Lydian Close, Wolverhampton, was banned from driving for 12 months, fined £120, ordered to pay costs of £135 and a victim surcharge of £34.
