A CAR has been seized by police after the driver was found behind the wheel with no insurance.

The distinctive Cosworth was collected by Stag Lane Motors and will be kept by the Hampshire Constabulary until agreed fees are paid, under the Road Traffic Act 1988.

A police spokesperson said: "Our colleagues managed to catch up with the driver of this vehicle who was out and about with no insurance. The vehicle has been seized and collected by Stag Lane.

"These officers use proactive targeted policing as well as intelligence led policing, using a number of overt and covert tactics.

"We would always encourage the public to report anything that is suspicious or concerns them.

"We often hear of people on social media talking about people driving in their areas without insurance, etc. If we don’t know about it, we can’t act on it."
