A driver faces a trip to see the beak after being pulled over near the bird reserve at Titchwell.

Police stopped a Peugeot hatchback heading east on the main A149 through the coastal village this morning.

One tweeted: “Vehicle seized for no insurance, driver doesn’t have a valid driving licence and the MOT ran out in July 2016.”

Officers have the power to seize cars on the spot where they are being driven without tax, insurance or an MOT.

Drivers face recover costs, as well as going to court. One agreed to hand over his Audi, after being found driving it uninsured in Norwich last night.

The car was towed away. But the driver will still face a court appearance.
