A man has appeared in court after cannabis with an estimated street value up to £120,000 was recovered from a car on the A74(M) near Lockerbie.

Mr Sejdoiu was also accused of contraventions of the Identity Documents Act and road traffic offences.

He was remanded in custody while Mr Smith was allowed bail.
