Officers from West Mercia’s Local Policing Priority Team – South pulled over the vehicle near Junction 5 late last night.

Police became suspicious when  the pair in the car, one who was disqualified from driving, decided to swap seats at 70mph.

Both were held on suspicion of drugs offences and the car and the cash were seized.
