POLICE are reminding drivers to check the condition of their tyres after a vehicle was stopped in Skipton last night.

Inspector Paul Cording, of North Yorkshire Police, said that, "unbelievably", the driver hadn’t been involved in a collision, despite the state their tyres were in.

It comes amid Tyre Safety Month, which takes place in October, intended to coincide with a change in weather and driving conditions.
