A TRUCKER was quizzed for hours after a singer’s roadies left drugs in a lorry he drove around Europe.

Phil McEveley, 52, was oblivious to the cannabis, pills and ecstasy.

Lorry driver Phil McEveley was shocked to discover a stash of cannabis, pills and ecstasy in the back of his 15-ton trailer

But he opened his 15-ton trailer in Plymouth and watched in horror as a Border Force dog sniffed out drugs in a rucksack.

Phil said: “Then the dog made its way through all the equipment to the back of the van and went to another bag. This also had ecstasy, cannabis and some other pills.”

After five hours he was allowed to drive away with a warning that he was under investigation.

Self-employed Phil, of Skelmersdale, Lancs, had been driving for American singer LP — real name Laura Pergolizzi — and her crew.


He waited weeks for someone from her management to contact him — only to receive an email from a top lawyer warning him off.

He contacted the crew and got two apologies. One message read: “Phil I’m honestly so sorry. I thought I’d cleared it out”.

Another text read: “Mate it really was an honest mistake, 2 grams. I can’t express how sorry I feel.”
