POLICE have taken action after discovering a disqualified driver behind the wheel. 

Officers in the Windhill and Wrose area stopped a car after it was seen driving at speed.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: "Checks conducted showed the driver was disqualified and did not hold a valid policy of insurance.

"The vehicle was seized and the driver reported.

"A file will be prepared for court."

Driving while disqualified potentially carries a sentence of up to six months in prison for the most serious offending.

At the bottom of the scale, a court may impose a fine as well as a further period of disqualification. 

Being convicted of driving while disqualified will result in a criminal record.
