Motorists targeted on cross-border roads between Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth

More than 60 vehicles were stopped on roads between Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth during a joint police operation.

Officers from Norfolk and Suffolk's ANPR Intercept teams were deployed on the Suffolk/Norfolk border last Thursday. They used Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology to stop suspicious vehicles during Operation Identify.

'During the operation 62 vehicles were intercepted, with five seized for driving licence, insurance and red diesel offences,' a police spokesman said. 'Officers issued 15 fixed penalty notices for offences including no insurance, and a warning was issued under section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act after a small amount of cannabis was seized from a driver.'
