Passenger had machete

TWO men were caught carrying drugs, a machete and a stun gun on a train between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

A passenger became suspicious about John Worthington and Adrian Clark, and told the conductor. When the train arrived at Haymarket, Worthington, 32, told officers he had a small amount of cannabis for personal use. The men, both of Dalry in Ayrshire, had a bag and a suitcase and when these were searched a large machete and a stun gun were found.
