A motorbike which was being driven without insurance was seized by police last night.

Officers spotted the Honda NSC 50 R vehicle outside the Spice Lounge restaurant on High Street, Chatteris just before 10.45pm yesterday (Thursday, April 16), and the male rider has since been reported.

Writing on the Policing Fenland Facebook page, a spokesperson said: “At 22:44 hours, officers had cause to stop this motorbike on High Street, Chatteris.

“The rider was found not to have any insurance. We seized their bike and the rider was reported.”

A Cambridgeshire police spokesperson added: “The bike will be taken to an impound lot and can be released for a £200 fee. He will likely be issued with a £300 fine and given six penalty points.”

In some instances, a driver could land an unlimited fine or even be disqualified from driving if the case was to go to court.

Police officers also have the power to seize and destroy the vehicle that has been driven without insurance.
