POLICE stopped a car which was being driven in a "careless manner" in Bradford - then found out it should not have been out on the roads at all.

Officers from West Yorkshire Police's Steerside Enforcement Team said they were concerned about the way the vehicle was being driven on Bowling Back Lane.

"It was seen being driven in a careless manner," a team spokesperson said.

Officers said they stopped the driver to discuss the matter further - then discovered the car had Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) status.

Declaring your vehicle off road with a SORN means you cannot drive or park it on a public road. Your vehicle will need to be kept in a garage or on private land, like your driveway

The Steerside team recovered the vehicle in question on behalf of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.

The driver was also reported for driving without due care and attention.
