Police were out in force in Hamilton on Saturday night, engaging with 400 motorists and making several arrests.

A police spokesman said that officers carried out a series of “stop and search” checks on Crow Lane between 9.45pm on Saturday and shortly after midnight.

“As a result, there were 400 motorist engagements resulting in four arrests for outstanding warrants, four traffic tickets issued for no driver’s licence, one arrest on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug and one arrest for possession of drug equipment,” the spokesman said.

“During police patrols elsewhere in the city, one motorist was arrested for care and control of a vehicle while intoxicated at 2.15am on Sunday at the junction of Reid Street and Court Street.

“Another motorist received an official written warning regarding their manner of driving.”

The spokesman said that the actions in Hamilton were in addition to general patrols across the island over the weekend.

He added: “Appropriate enforcement efforts will continue at various locations around the island to reduce the likelihood of violence, while deterring and tackling any traffic offences.”
