A van was seized after the driver was stopped in Richmond by police.

Officers say they stopped the vehicle on Friday because it stood out due to its poor state of repair.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson added: “The vehicle was quickly stopped where it was found to have no tax.

“It was seized due to this but the driver has also been reported for various motoring offences.

“The roads should be a safe place for all to use so if you do see something that you’re not happy with please report this on 101 or in an emergency 999.”
