A crackdown on illegal driving in Richmondshire has resulted in several motorists facing prosecution.

The driver of a Vauxhall Insignia was stopped in Catterick Garrison yesterday and found to be driving unsupervised while on a provisional licence.

The car was seized until it can be collected by a qualified driver and the motorist was reported.

In a separate incident the driver of a vehicle involved in a collision in the district over the weekend is facing prosecution for illegal tyres.

Traffic officers said two tyres on the vehicle were among the worst they had ever seen.

A traffic offence report was issued to the driver and vehicle was prohibited from the road until the excess weight was removed.
