A white van has been taken off the streets in Tonge Moor after it was found to be uninsured.

Police officers seized the vehicle this evening from Larkfield Grove, having seen the van being driven around the area earlier in the day.

The van did have an insurance policy in place but it was discovered to be fraudulent.

In a statement shared on Facebook Greater Manchester Police said: "Officers from the Bolton North Neighbourhood Team have seized this van this evening from Larkfield Grove in Tonge Moor for having no insurance.

"It had been seen driven by officers earlier and the insurance had been obtained fraudulently."
