A driver was forced to ask for a lift from his grandmother after he was pulled over by police for driving without a licence.

The driver, stopped by police in Methwold, near Brandon, reportedly rang his grandmother for a lift after he was caught.

PC Jon Parker, a patrol officer for Norfolk Police, posted on Twitter: “PC Kettell and I have seized this vehicle just now in Methwold for being driven without a licence.

“A quick phone call to Grandma has saved the young driver a long walk home.”

On Sunday night, Breckland Police stopped a driver in Watton for having no insurance for the second time this month.

The police tweeted: “Just because it is raining, doesn’t mean we won’t come out to play. Another vehicle seized in Watton for no insurance. This is the second time this month for the driver.”
