The Norfolk and Suffolk police dogs team pulled the driver over at the A47 near Terrington this evening.

They dealt with the driver for not having licence or insurance, and afterwards found the licence in the car.

Registered to a Mr Del Trotter, the fake stated they were only licensed to drive a three wheeler, when they were clearly driving a Renault Megane.

The car has now been seized by police, who added the licence “wasn’t produced in an attempt to deceive”.

After the stop police tweeted: “#BonnetDeDouche everybody, not even this #Plonkers fake driving licence could stop their car being seized.

“Driver reported No DL & No Ins #A47 Terrington. #PotPourri”
