A CAR turbo specialist has been accused of not providing details of a driver when asked to by police.

ITS Turbochargers, based in Manor Works in Drighlington, is charged with failing to give information relating to the identification of the driver of a vehicle when required.

It is alleged that on July 2 last year the business was asked to provide details of the driver of a Citroen Berlingo by the Chief Officer of Police for North Yorkshire.

This was because the driver of the vehicle is alleged to have been guilty of a road traffic offence.

It is alleged that ITS Turbochargers failed to give this information.

The case was heard on Wednesday at Harrogate Magistrates' Court, where the company pleaded not guilty.

But the case was adjourned to December 1 at Scarborough Magistrates' Court for trial, on a live link.

ITS Turbochargers was established in 1993 and and it specialises in anything turbocharger related for all cars, commercial, marine and agricultural, according to the firm's website.
