A Hunstanton chef has admitted driving with two drugs in his system.

A tip-off to police led to Kamruz Zaman being pulled over on the A47 at West Walton. He was carrying a passenger at the time.

Lynn Magistrates’ Court heard on Thursday that he admitted to having used drugs two days previously.

A roadside drug wipe tested positive for cannabis and cocaine.

An evidential test showed 75 micrograms of a cocaine derivative per litre of blood in his system (the legal limit is 50) and three micrograms of a cannabis derivative (limit two).

Solicitor George Sorrell, mitigating, said: “It doesn’t seem there was anything out of the ordinary about his driving.

“He was stopped and these substances were found in his blood.

“Being a good young person, he was foolish to take this stuff. He doesn’t regularly take drugs.”

Zaman, who pleaded guilty to two counts of drug-driving on May 24, was banned for 16 months.

He was also fined £230 and ordered to pay £105 costs plus a £34 victim surcharge.
