A 30-year-old man who sparked a police chase on a major road in West Lothian has been charged with drug offences.

At around 10.50am on Tuesday, police tried to stop a Honda Civic in Edinburgh Road near Bathgate. The driver’s failure to stop sparked a police chase, which ended when the driver stopped his car on the A89 at Boghall.

The man was arrested and was also charged with road traffic offences. A Police Scotland spokesman said: “He has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.”
