A TEENAGE motorcyclist was caught with cannabis after being pulled over for having no MOT, a court heard.

Callum Martin Fisher, 19, pleaded guilty at Weymouth Magistrates Court to possession of a class B drug.

Magistrates heard Fisher was riding his motorcycle in Weymouth on July 8 when he was recognised by a police officer and pulled over when it was discovered he had no MOT.

While speaking to Fisher, the officer was "suddenly aware of a strong smell of cannabis," prosecutor Elizabeth Valera said.

The officer searched Fisher and found 1.1g of cannabis in a food bag.

Simon Lacey, mitigating, said: "He fully co-operated with police and handed the drugs over."

Fisher, of Primula Close, Weymouth, was handed a conditional discharge for 12 months and ordered to pay costs of £85 plus a £21 victim surcharge.
