Six uninsured cars were seized by police during a day of action in Corby focusing on safe driving.

Following traffic checks, a further five drivers were asked to produce their vehicle documents and another was stopped because their car had a faulty headlight.

One vehicle was stopped and searched after officers received information suggesting it may have been used in a crime, and 49 vehicles were checked to confirm they had a valid car insurance and MOT.

In response to concerns from residents, officers spent time reminding drivers about the ‘no access’ traffic regulations in George Street.

Speed checks were also carried out in George Street and Gretton Road and eight drivers were given verbal warnings.

Sgt Rod Mackenzie, of Corby local response team, said: “Officers worked hard to make the day of action a success. Dealing with motorists who drive illegally or without consideration for others remains a priority. We have another day of action planned for Wednesday, June 5.”
