Police found the driver had no insurance after pulling the car over on the A47 yesterday.

The only licence the driver had was in the name of Del Trotter.

It stated the Renault Megane motorist was only qualified to drive a three-wheeler.

Officers reported the driver to court and also seized the car.

They posted: “#BonnetDeDouche everybody, not even this #Plonkers fake driving licence could stop their car being seized. Driver reported No DL & No Ins #A47 Terrington. #PotPourri #68”
