The incident, which happened on Sunday, took place at 3am on Canvey.

A spokesman for the team said: “Our local policing teams patrol all over the Castle Point district, on 7th March a vehicle was seen at 3am driving erratically and made a bit of an effort to avoid police.

“Eventually it was stopped on Canvey, the driver admitted using cocaine and was drug tested.”

They have since been released under investigation pending further blood test results.
