AN arrest warrant has been issued for a Cardigan man who failed to appear at court.

Baran Coskun, of St Mary Street, Cardigan, has been charged with driving when the proportion of a controlled drug exceeded the prescribed limit.

It is alleged he was driving an Audi A3 at Morgan Street, Cardigan , on May 7, when the amount of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (cannabis) was 2.2 microgrammes per litre of blood. The legal limit is two microgrammes.

The 25-year-old failed to appear at Aberystwyth Justice Centre and magistrates issued an arrest warrant without bail.
