It's not exactly the news you want to hear when you're looking forward to that mouth-watering pizza.
For if you ordered a takeaway in Lowestoft and wondered why it never arrived, your Hawaiian with extra everything might be the one that ended up impounded.
When traffic cops stopped a Vauxhall Corsa in the Suffolk coastal town for having no insurance yesterday, the driver said he was making a delivery to a customer.
'This delivery driver was driving w/o insurance #s165,' they tweeted from the roadside.
'He now can't work and someone hasn't got their food. Apologies for the latter.'
