A car was seized by police after its driver was reportedly found not to have a licence to be on the road.
Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team Tweeted a photograph of the Volvo estate car being towed away after they seized the vehicle in Newmarket.
And officers had a warning for other road users following the incident during the morning of Monday, October 22.
“If you drive a vehicle without a valid driving licence you can expect it to end up on the back of a recovery truck,” they Tweeted.
“That’s exactly what happened to this unlicensed driver in #Newmarket this morning #seized.”
