One Suffolk driver was caught with a tyre so worn that the cord beneath the rubber was visible - a very dangerous condition for the car to be used in.

The dedicated team of Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team have now spoken to the driver and seized the silver Ford to protect the owner and the public.

The offender was stopped in Emlen Street in Ipswich.

They tweeted: “Checks of the car found a tyre with the ply/cord exposed.

“On doing a document check, vehicle also found to have no insurance. Now seized.”
