A SPANISH bus driver has been stopped twice in 17 days for driving while under the influence of drugs in Torre Pachecho.

The 48-year-old, who lives in Murcia, now faces a €2,000 fine and a 12 point loss from his driving licence.

The incidents took place on the RM-313 and the RM-14 respectively as he drove his bus on the route from Torre-Pacheco to Jumilla. On each occasion, there were at least 14 passengers on the bus.

He was first stopped during random Cartegena police checks at the end of October. An initial saliva test showed a positive reading for both cocaine and cannabis.

He was again stopped by the motorcycle division close to the A-30 in Torre-Pachecho earlier this month, and the test produced similar results.

On both occasions, the buses were immobilised until a replacement driver arrived.
