A man whose car was seized by police was also found to be in breach of coronavirus quarantine rules after failing to self-isolate when told to.
Police confirmed that a male driver in his 20s was stopped by roads policing officers on Havelock Road in Great Yarmouth at 1.45pm on Tuesday during a routine patrol.
Initially, the stop was made after officers noticed a brake light defect on the vehicle - and the driver not wearing a seatbelt.
The car had an expired MOT and no insurance, and so the driver was issued with a Traffic Offence Report.
Further enquiries revealed that the man had also just entered the UK from another European country, but had not followed the 14-day self-isolation requirement as per government guidelines.
