Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Road and Armed Policing Team (NSRAPT) seized the vehicle in Ipswich after the driver reportedly claimed he had left his licence at home – in Spain.

Taking to social media to spread the word, police said they also found a child in the back seat who they claimed was not wearing a seatbelt.

Meanwhile, officers claimed the tread was below limit on one tyre, and the two rear tyres were different sizes.

Police issued two fixed penalty notices and seized the vehicle.

The force tweeted: “The child being carried in the rear of this vehicle in #Ipswich was not wearing a seatbelt.

“Tread was below limit on the RN/S tyre and two rear tyres were different sizes.

“Driver was unable to produce his licence as it was at home (in Spain).”
