Officers from the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) have seized a substantial amount of cash and made an arrest after stopping a black people carrier on the M1, a short distance from Tibshelf services on Friday (18/3).

The man, aged 37 was arrested on suspicion of money laundering offences after a search of the vehicle revealed a large bag containing the cash.

The ROCU officers were supported by officers from West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire Police.

The suspect was interviewed and released under investigation as enquiries continue.
