A LEARNER-driver who was stopped by gardai on the northside of Limerick city is facing prosecution after they tested positive for three different drugs.

According to a post of social media, members of the divisional Roads Policing Unit stopped the Ford Fiesta car after they observed it being driven in a reckless manner.
