Two men found with cocaine worth £120,000 in a car have been jailed.

Shkelqim Dardha and Bekim Domi, both Albanian nationals, were stopped at Corley services on the M6 in Warwickshire by a Central Motorway Policing Group patrol.

Officers found a block of cocaine weighing almost 1kg (2.20lb), as well as two bricks of cannabis resin.

The men, both 25, admitted possession of drugs with intent to supply at Warwick Crown Court.

When interviewed by police the pair - who are believed to have been travelling to London from the West Midlands - initially blamed each other for the drugs found in the car boot.

Dardha, of Dartmouth Road in Brent Cross, and Domi, who lives on Avenue Road in the Acton area of London, were each jailed for four years and eight months.
