A van full of snacks was found to be overweight after being stopped at Scotch Corner.

The driver was allowed to continue on their way after a pallet of the snacks was removed.

Traffic officers stopped the vehicles as Scotch Corner as part of spot checks for Commercial Vehicle Week.

Traffic Constable David Minto said: “I pulled the vehicle into DVSA Enforcement at Scotch Corner yesterday.

“It was 5.14 per cent overweight.

“After some ‘snacks’ were jettisoned, the prohibition was lifted and the driver allowed to continue his journey.
