TWO men have been charged with possessing cannabis with intent to supply after police stopped a car on the M6.

Qui Chen, 23, of Bromsgrove Street in Birmingham and 65-year-old Robert Leung, of no fixed address, appeared at South Cumbria Magistrates' Court today after being accused of being involved in supplying the class B drug.

The drugs recovered by police in an Audi near junction 37 are thought to be valued at £100,000.

The men are due to appear at Carlisle Crown Court for a hearing on March 22.
