THREE people have been arrested after a car travelling at more than 120mph was stopped on the A64.

North Yorkshire Police Road Policing Group tweeted that a safety camera van operator alerted officers to the vehicle.

"Stopped near Rillington and the occupants play a game of musical chairs - resulting in three males arrested, two positive drug wipes for cannabis also."

Police dog Skye attended and located some hidden cannabis - the occupants will be interviewed today about numerous offences.

During the rest of the night, police tweeted about a range of incidents including:

  • Disorder in York, 'sadly a result of people having too much alcohol on board and making poor decisions. Thankfully no serious injuries and inquiries ongoing.'
  • Crash on the A19 near Thirsk. "Both occupants claimed not to be driving, however both tested positive for cannabis."
