A BARROW man has been fined after pleading guilty to drug-driving.

Ryan James Arrowsmith, 40, drove a Fiat in the car park of Asda in Barrow while the proportion of cannabis in his blood - at five micrograms per litre - exceeded the specified limit of two micrograms per litre.

Arrowsmith, of Ayr Street, committed the offence on August 9 of this year.

He was fined £120 at South Cumbria Magistrates’ Court in Barrow. Court documents say his guilty plea was taken into account when imposing a sentence.
