A DRIVER was arrested after their vehicle was found uninsured, as well as being wanted for failing to appear at court.

Officers stopped the driver last night on Church Street, Little Lever, after their registration appeared to be covered up.

It was later discovered that the vehicle was uninsured.

The driver’s vehicle was seized, and they were also wanted for failing to appear at court for drug offences.

A GMP Traffic spokesperson said: “This vehicle was stopped overnight on Church Street, Little Lever as officers noticed the registration was covered up.

“Not only was the vehicle uninsured, but the driver was also wanted for failing to appear at court for drugs offences.

“The vehicle was seized, and the driver was arrested.”

A stolen vehicle was also recovered yesterday in Westhoughton after a member of the public shared information with the police.
