Police have issued a warning to drivers to make sure their vehicle is insured after seizing an Audi A3 on the A10 just south of Ely on Monday.
A police spokesman said: “This is what it looks like when an uninsured 2016 plate Audi A3 is removed from the road because the keeper failed to insure it.
“The Roads Policing Unit has been active in East Cambridgeshire over the weekend, targeting vehicles using the highway unlawfully.
“Over the course of the weekend two more vehicles were seized, including a Ford Focus and a BMW 3 series saloon. Neither vehicle was insured.
“Two further vehicles were dealt with for driving without MOT certification.”

Sergeant Phil Priestley said: “Uninsured drivers cost the insurance industry £300 million a year - a cost that is passed on to every insured driver in increased premiums.
“This Audi will be taken away - the cost of removal charged to the owner. If the owner wishes to reclaim the vehicle, he/she will have to provide a certificate of insurance and pay the storage costs.
