A vehicle was stopped and seized after police checks revealed it had no insurance or MOT.

Officers were called into action this morning in Bicester as Thames Valley Police reported the driver.

Police said in a public post that "no insurance means no car".

It’s illegal to drive a vehicle on a road or in a public place without at least third party insurance.

Those convicted could receive an unlimited fine and be disqualified from driving.

Police also have the power to seize, and in some cases, destroy the vehicle that’s being driven uninsured.

Drivers may be penalised even if the vehicle itself is insured if they are not correctly insured to drive it.

Thames Valley Police has been contacted for further information on the case.
