POLICE seized a van on false plates and with an MOT that expired two years ago from a driver who had no licence.

Officers from West Yorkshire's Roads Policing Unit (RPU) stopped the red Ford Transit on the M606, in Bradford, yesterday afternoon.

The vehicle's number plate "aroused suspicion" with police.

A search found that the plates being used were false.

The actual vehicle had no insurance and its MOT expired back in 2018.

The driver also did not have a driving licence.

Police seized the van and reported the driver to court, as a result.
