HEROIN worth £27,000 was seized by police after they pulled over a 4x4 vehicle on the M8 motorway.

A 45-year-old man was arrested and charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act after officers seized a “large quantity” of the Class A drug.

Officers stopped a Freelander travelling east near Junction Four around 4.10pm yesterday and conducted a search of the car and its driver.

The heroin was recovered inside the car along with a white powder, which has been sent for analysis.

The man was set to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today.
