A driver had their car seized after they were spotted by police cruising ‘in an odd manner’ with no insurance in East Cambridgeshire.
The unnamed Audi A3 driver was stopped in Littleport on Saturday, October 26 after police clocked the strange driving.
A few simple checks later using the cops' on-board computer revealed the driver had no insurance and was driving illegally.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: "Police in Littleport spotted a car driving in an odd manner.
"We did some simple checks and it was revealed the driver had no insurance.
"Another vehicle seized and off the roads. Remember we can't be everywhere but we can be anywhere."
The silver Audi was seized as part of the force's Operation Raptor which began in March this year.
