The driver had fled the scene – but left a strong smell behind.

The Roads Policing Unit tweeted: “One lucky escape for this driver who didn’t hang around to speak to Police.

“They clearly ran out of talent whilst driving through Elswick!


“All that’s left to do now is track down the driver & ask why their car stunk of cannabis?”
