A teenage motorist stopped by police in Bishop's Stortford told them he had magic mushrooms on him.

The 18-year-old was driving along Villiers-sur-Marne Avenue in Thorley Park at about 1am on Sunday (Dec 13) when officers on patrol got him to pull over.

They detected a strong smell of cannabis and he told them he had the mushrooms, which are an illegal class A drug. Officers searched his car but found no more substances.

A roadside cheek swab test revealed he was over the legal drug-drive limit. He was arrested on suspicion of drug driving and possession of a class A drug. He has since been released under police investigation.

Magic mushrooms are fungi with hallucinogenic properties which are classified as illegal as they are considered a psilocybin-containing preparation. They were banned in the UK in 2005; until then, they had been sold in the country.
