The Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit described the shocking haul as a “little bundle” in a post on social media.  

Police also discovered that the driver, who was in possession of a knife, not only had a car full of drugs, but had no car insurance or even a license.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “When you decide to spend your Saturday afternoon gardening and put all your clippings in the car to take them to your mates house, but forget that you don’t have a driving licence and then get stopped by the police... oops! Seized. Smells funky.

"A 42-year-old man is appearing in court today after our Road Policing Unit stopped him on the A14 at Brampton on Saturday with this little bundle.  

“He’s been charged with possession with intent to supply cannabis, driving without a licence and insurance and possession of a knife.”
