A man, who was driving his family to a wedding in Suffolk, allegedly told police he was 17 years old when he was stopped at the road side.

However, officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Unit carried out background checks and discovered he was actually 41.

The man was stopped by officers at Kentford on Friday (March 15), as he was driving his family of five including a teenager, down from Lancashire to East Anglia for the wedding.

The driver was subsequently reported on suspicion of speeding along the A14 at Newmarket, having no licence and having no insurance policy for the Peugeot Partner he was driving.

His vehicle was seized at the road side by officers.
