A motorcyclist had his vehicle seized in Littleport yesterday for riding without insurance, tax and MOT, sporting an illegal number plate and not wearing a helmet.
The driver was caught at around 2pm on Camel Road, having committed the road traffic equivalent of a ‘full house’.
Police took the motorcycle away and the driver was reported for summons for the offences. He now faces a potential disqualification, fine or both.
PCSO Annie Austin said: “I spotted him riding with no helmet, and it’s quite an eye catching bike.”
PC Neil Evans then came in to complete the legal requirements to seize and take the vehicle away.

“It’s unusual to encounter a motorcycle that isn’t insured and doesn’t have a full MOT.
