Police have seized a vehicle in Bolton after the driver was found to have no insurance.

Officers came across the car on Eskrick Street in Halliwell.

They carried out enquiries and found there was no insurance police in place.

A GMP spokesperson said: "The driver was issued a traffic offence report and the vehicle was seized under S165 of the Road Traffic Act."

Earlier this week police recovered a vehicle in Rumworth after it had been parked in the same spot for two months.

Under UK traffic law a motorist found to be driving without insurance can face a fine and six points on their driving licence.

If there are matters which aggravate the case, such as sustained uninsured use of a vehicle, they may be banned from the roads.
