Lancashire Road Police: A disguised lorry, 98mph and drug-driving - this is what officers have been dealing with this week

A lorry isn’t the easiest thing to disguise, but a driver in Lancashire had a go this week.

Eagle-eyed patrol officers noticed that the number plate on a Mercedes was too new for the age of the vehicle, and pulled it over on the M6 north near Lancaster.

Checks revealed the driver had been using it without insurance and had disguised it by using a different plate.

The lorry was then seized – just one of the vehicles taken off the road this week in Lancashire.
