Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team were carrying out speed enforcement last night (Thursday, February 14).

They tweeted that 'numerous drivers' had been reported for excess speed during the crackdown in Brandon Road, Swaffham, including a tanker driver.

They also posted a photograph of a Mercedes which police seized after the driver failed to stop during the enforcement action.

Police said: 'They decided they didn't want to stop and made off. Unfortunately for them we found where they'd left their vehicle (and seized it). We've also identified the driver. You'll be hearing from us soon.'
