A man in his 20s has been released on bail, after he was stopped on a main Isle of Wight road and arrested on suspicion of drug dealing. 

At around 4.15pm on Tuesday (January 30), Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary stopped a BMW travelling along Morton Road between Brading and Sandown.

Both the driver and the vehicle were searched under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, and suspected 'Class A drugs' were seized from the car, said police.
