Officers searched a lorry travelling on the M74 around five hours later. They found cannabis worth around £297,000. A 49-year-old man was arrested.

Detective Inspector Graeme Lindsay, of Police Scotland, said: "These recoveries clearly demonstrate our commitment to ridding our communities of drugs."
