Driver who went on non-essential trip from Milton Keynes to buy a car has vehicle seized for no insurance

A person who drove from Milton Keynes to Bedford on what Police are describing as a 'non-essential' trip to purchase a new car has had the vehicle seized for having no insurance.

Officers took to Facebook to say it was an 'unlucky day' for the person who was stopped by a Police Community Support Officer.

The driver was given the opportunity to purchase insurance at the roadside however they failed to do so.

The car was seized and they were given a £300 fine, £150 recovery fee and six points added to their licence.
