An uninsured and untaxed van that had been evading police for several weeks was finally seized in a Fenland village yesterday (Thursday February 29). 

Officers recovered the vehicle in Doddington during the afternoon.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: “The unregistered van had been avoiding the Rural Crime Action Team around the Fens for a couple of weeks. 

“Unluckily for the driver, persistence paid off and now we've seized it. 

 “It'll be auctioned or crushed in 14 days.”
